A Non-OTR Driver's Perspective on Human Trafficking with Tim Taylor
Driving Freedom Podcast
What if you are not an over-the-road driver or spend every night at home? Could you still be in a place to recognize and report human trafficking? Yes, local and regional drivers are still very much in locations to potentially intersect with victims of trafficking as you’ll hear from America's Road Team Captain and TAT Ambassador Tim Taylor, a road driver for FedEx Freight. Tim shares his own stories as a driver, experiences as a TAT Ambassador and his experience observing sex trafficking in Florida. Learning to see the red flags, such as recognizing minors in commercial sex and the signs of traffickers, and then, telling others about trafficking, are both ways to make a difference wherever you are. Drivers are critical members of our communities, and no matter the miles you drive on a daily basis, you can be equipped to provide a pathway to freedom.

Tim Taylor is a writer and freelance teacher who works on promoting and developing innovative practices in primary schools. He is also the author of 'A Beginner's Guide to Mantle of the Expert', an approach to teaching and learning that involves engaging the children in a process of what Tim describes as ‘imaginative enquiry’. Working with Luke Abbott and others, Tim has helped grow a sizeable community of practice around the approach in recent years, and it’s well worth a visit to the Mantle of the Expert website: https://www.mantleoftheexpert.com. This is a fascinating conversation in which we discuss some of the ludicrous educational fads and bizarre beliefs that have gripped the teaching profession in recent years; the powerful potential of mantle of the expert, of course; and the troubling fact that if you were going to change the education system, you wouldn’t want to start from here. The Rethinking Education podcast is hosted and produced by Dr James Mannion. You can contact him at rethinking-ed.org/contact, or via @RethinkingJames on Twitter.
