This week on MinneCulture: “The Walk to School,” an audio documentary about a Minneapolis family’s decision to attend public school outside its immediate residential zone. Producer Ralph L. Crowder III explores education and school choice through the lens of Monique, a single parent raising her daughter Amaree, and her niece Leslie. “The Walk to School” is a day-in-the-life account of how the family copes with the public education achievement gap, and what it’s doing to create better opportunities for the next generation. Ralph Crowder is an independent producer from Minneapolis who specializes in local and national education issues. MinneCulture airs every Monday and Wednesday evening from 7:30-8pm on KFAI, and is made possible by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

Byron Katie, founder of The Work, has one job: to teach people how to end their own suffering. As she guides people through the powerful process of inquiry she calls The Work, they find that their stressful beliefs—about life, other people, or themselves— radically shift and their lives are changed forever.

Katie talked with Health Notes about The Work and how it relates to the work of Dr. Martin Luther King.
