Picasso, Poland & Pedagogy

This week, the story of one of Europe’s strangest art heists keeps getting stranger; the fate of Poland’s judges keeps getting more complicated; and a teacher in one of France’s poorest towns refuses to give up on her kids. Juliette Perchais is on the line to talk about what it’s like teaching in one of her country’s toughest schools and how she traveled the world to bring back the best educational ideas out there.

Check out her website, Stories of Inspiring Teachers — it does what it says on the tin. You can also find some reporting Katy did from Grigny here.

And last but not least, your podcast recommendations for the week:

Dominic’s singing in Berlin, Katy’s painting in Paris, and a forest is quietly growing just outside Oslo. Our guest this week is Anne Beate Hovind, project manager of a strange and wonderful project in Norway involving books, trees and the passage of time. Also on the menu, Florence is taking things OFF the street food menu and Poland is harnessing the power of the howling wind. Plus, a glimmer of hope after some dark days in Chemnitz.
