If you spent any of your school years at all in a Catholic school, then you probably spent some time being taught by nuns. Over the years, more and more Catholic schools are turning to lay teachers as fewer women are called to a religious vocation. But there is at least one college in the northeast that is still run by someone called “sister”, not “mister”

Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll hear a conversation with Sister Mary Reap, the President of Elms College in the Berkshires.

We’ll also hear about student in New York State college holding a good old fashioned sit-in…and we’ll spend an academic minute annoying women.
