  • Episode 2- It’s a Matter of Principal

    by Length:

    This episode of the Bates Podcast followed up on the news from Mr Deroo that this would be his last year as principal for Bates Middle school due to his retirement.  Will and Robert meet with the chief for an afterschool meeting to find out more about the man, his work, and his visions of the future for himself and the school.

    What would have been the story of the month was run aground by the encroaching wave of Covid-19 announcements that were made the day after the interview, changing the way we go to school and the way society goes about its normal business.  With the magic of a little bit of editing, we managed to cobble together the episode and hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we did recording it.
