Tim and Johnny are joined by teacher Hailee fresh out of a union meeting and fired up to talk fully leaded education. Are we teaching children mindfulness techniques in order to help them grow as people or as one more desperate effort for behavior management in the classroom? One helps us as a society, one only ingrains mindless obedience and disdain for strategies to increase mental wellness. Additionally, are we using "mindfulness" techniques as an unsatisfactory stopgap because of a legitimately broken education system?
