November 29, 2018


Cinque Henderson is the author of "Sit Down and Shut Up: How Discipline Can Set Students Free" (St Martins Press/New York 2018). 

Cinque was a school substitute teacher in Los Angeles, California for a year. His book is based on his experiences. He has a wonderful writing style that makes you want to keep reading. I am sure that you will identify with many of his experiences.

We talked about Cinque's book, his experiences, and his thoughts about what should be changed in education.

Cinque is a graduate of Harvard University.

He has written for HBO’s The Newsroom and Showtime’s The Chi.

His work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times and The Washington Post.

Lots to think about.

Thanks for listening.
