New Season Focuses On Education In America

The Emmy®- and WGA Award-winning comedian and writer offers his unique perspective on topics from the trivial to the impactful, mixing in-studio commentary, comedic segments and documentary-style field reports.
This season focuses on education in America, investigating teacher pay, student mental health, the school-to-prison pipeline and other pressing topics. Cenac will visit West Virginia, Oregon, California, Minnesota and other areas around the country to learn how communities navigate issues facing public education.
Okay, so that tease played up the comedic side oy Wyatt but there is some serious discussion ahead just as there was in Season One when he took on policing practices & concerns. Though he does go for some serious conversations to get behind the primary topic he lightens it up whenever he cans or needs to do so. The release concludes with –
While education today serves as the season’s primary focus, WYATT CENAC’S PROBLEM AREAS will address other issues, including the unionization of fast-food workers and the potential dangers of facial recognition software, as well as comedic solutions to lighter topics, such as how to get more steps in at the office or how to teach kids practical skills, like filing taxes.
