Subject for Classrooms

(5 stars)

As I listened, I kept hearing statements in this that would be great teaching tools in the classroom, and/or in a literary discussion group. Students should read (or listen) to this and discuss its many social issues: expedience vs. hard truth; public health vs. the economic health of a town; class issues; whether the majority is always right; whether truth can be timeless or whether it must change, etc. Well performed as well.
