  1. The link you provided doesn’t work. Try https://soundcloud.com/tommy-schnurmacher-show/teachers-panel-june-15-2015…(1) From the podcast, Katherine : “those(extra curricular) are the activities that bring life into a school”. Our job is to bring academic subjects to life, not to act as a travel agency. I’m becoming increasingly annoyed by expensive, elitist trips where kids effectively pay for substitution, teachers’ accommodation and plane tickets. Many students also struggle to catch up on lost classes. (2) You’re right on by exposing the meta-analysis myth about class size. (3) Selective integration, a nuanced approach as you say, is indeed the way to go.
