Clayvon C. Harris talks with us about her book SUB - Inside the Notorious School District of Philadelphia. This is episode 483 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.
Writer and advocate for fair and equal education, Clayvon C. Harris earned an MFA in Cinema-TV/Screenwriting from the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts and a BA in English literature from Swarthmore College where students are taught they have the ability to change the world.
Harris lives and writes in the Philadelphia area where she specializes in messaging strategy, digital content creation and script development.
She is also a member of the Writers Guild of America.
Her first book is the award-winning collection of essays, Year of Trial, Year of Grace—A Catholic’s Search for Faith.
Clayvon left a career of writing for television behind and returned to Philadelphia where she planned to pursue a career in teaching. Easing in as a substitute, she was confronted by disruption and violence that undermined both the learning environment and her aspirations. Still hoping to contribute, she wrote an insightful first-hand account of the conditions and real-life challenges teachers and students face on a daily basis …Today we are focused on her book - SUB—Inside the Notorious School District of Philadelphia.
