On Extra Credit, writer Neal Pollack augments his son's public school education with his own, somewhat questionable, life lessons. In this episode, after learning that some Texas schoolbooks refer to African slaves as "migrant workers," Neal takes Elijah on a road trip to Lousiana, where they visit a slavery museum on a former plantation.
I stumbled across this in the Channels and it is a wonderful surprise. My son is no longer a teenager but the interplay between father and son is genuine and Neal is taking Elijah on an amazing journey. No earth shattering revelations or significant life changing moments, but I think Elijah (and Neal), as well as the rest of us, will be better off for their field trips. Maybe a little more cognizant of the world and how history is truly written by those that buy the text books and control the state legislature. I hope that Audible continues with this series, it's one that I highly recommend.
