Little Red School House

Nov 25, 2019

After listening to our episode "Grades are Capitalism in Action,” a former student from Jefferson County Open School in Denver reached out to us. “I never got a single grade while attending JCOS,” Edward told us.

Obviously, this sparked our interest. This led to a fantastic conversation that had become one of our favorite episodes.

Not only did we get to hear about Edward's experience as a student of an open school, but we also got to speak to his former advisor and former teacher from the same open school, too.

Thank you Lauren and Edward for an amazing time.

We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we enjoyed making it.



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.
