Education systems across the United States are designed to move learners through a prescribed sequence of materials to demonstrate proficiency on standardised tests, earn credits to graduate high school, and go on to a traditional career. But this ‘one size fits all’ system doesn’t work for everyone.

There are nearly 2.2 million domestic workers across the United States doing essential work, as nannies caring for children, house cleaners, and care workers ensuring loved ones live independently with dignity. The National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) is a US-based not-for-profit organisation that works for the respect, recognition, and labour protection of domestic workers.

The Walking Classroom is a national award-winning education programme in the US that provides students and teachers with an innovative way to get exercise without sacrificing instructional time.

It has now developed over 165 educational podcasts that cover various topics such as language, arts, science, history and more.
