Little Red School House

Jul 12, 2019

On this episode, we are joined by Emily Leedham who is a host on @RFRadioPrairie, a union news show for the prairie provinces in Canada. She has been an organizer for #15andFareness which is the movement to ensure minimum wage is a livable wage. 

Emily joins us to talk about union history, strikes, changes within union movements, cross-union solidarity, and how educators have historically been front-line actors in workers’ rights struggles.


Little Red School House focuses on issues with our current education system and ways we can empower students, educators, and anyone who cares about education.

Shouldn’t people be put before profits? Shouldn’t our children be educated to grow and learn instead of being treated like the means to the financial gain of those in power? If you agree with this so-called “radical” and “revolutionary” perspective, you’ve come to the right place!

Join educators Gord Milstone and John Battalion as they call out systemic problems and discuss how we can break down barriers in the educational system.
