Three Miles

Miles’ by Chana Joffe-Walt is an audio blog that examines the attempt by two teachers from schools worlds apart in terms of resources, privilege and advantage, yet only three miles apart geographically. The point was to foster radical empathy, a concept of exchanging ideas, points of view. This article describes in detail the shock experienced by both the elite private school-students at Fieldston and the largely-poor, minority students from the public school University Heights once they exchanged stories and enlightenment from the other’s world.
