Myth Busters (Remarkable Chatter Episode #21)

True or False:  Schools must provide a minimum of 186 hours of instruction for each Carnegie unit of credit awarded.

True or False:  Public schools were first established in the United States to accommodate the various learning styles and student needs prevalent in the 19th century.

If you answered “True” to either question, you need to join Steve Wyckoff, Tamara Konrade, and Bill Hagerman as they debunk many educational myths in this episode.  FYI–The time requirement associated with Carnegie units in Kansas was eliminated in 2005, and public schools were established to meet the need for trained factory workers on the assembly lines prevalent during the Industrial Revolution.
