Feuerborn researches social emotional learning. This model focuses on a student’s individual needs, feelings and emotions while shifting away from a more punitive approach to school discipline which has historically lead to disproportionately higher rates of suspension and explosions for BIPOC students. Feuerborn also discusses the new Education Specialist in School Psychology program at UW Tacoma and how it’s training the next generation of school psychologists to be more equity-minded.

- Locus Focus: Airs 11am daily Stopping Line 3: On his first day in office Joe Biden canceled the Keystone XL Pipeline. That was great news. But that’s not the only fossil fuel pipeline that needs to be stopped. Here in Oregon people are still trying to stop for good the nearly dead Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline, while in the Midwest people have been organizing since 2014 to halt Line 3, a proposed pipeline expansion to bring nearly a million barrels of tar sands per day from Alberta, Canada to Superior, Wisconsin. On this episode of Locus Focus we are joined by Elijah Cetas, with the Braided River Campaign, who recently visited the proposed pipeline site. We talk about why he chose to go and connect with the water protectors in Wisconsin and the links between the struggle to stop Line 3 and the fossil fuel fights here in the Northwest.
