Hey Guys, What am I doing wrong with this one?

flask_app.py
from flask import Flask, render_template

from teachers import TEACHERS

app = Flask(__name__)


@app.route('/')
def index():
    return render_template("teachers.html", teachers=TEACHERS)
templates/teachers.html
<ul class="teachers">

  {% for teacher in teachers: %}
  <li><h2>{{ teacher['name'] }}</h2></li>

    {% for course in teacher['courses']: %}
  <li> {{ course }} </li>

  {% endfor %}

  </li>

  {% endfor %}

</ul>

Hey Gregg.

Just surround the secondo for block (lines about 5 to 8) with the ul tag and you should be fine.

Any problems let me know.

Hell Gregg.

At first sight I see these problems with the code:

1) you have an extra list item closing tag (</li>)

2) The second part of the code challenge asks for a new ul tag inside the li tag we have previously created, with a class of "courses", which I can't see in your code.

HUh, bu I passed the first challenge....Were do I put that course class? I removed the extra closing tag. <ul class="teachers">

 {% for teacher in teachers: %}
 <li class="courses"><h2>{{ teacher['name'] }}</h2>

{% for course in teacher['courses']: %}
 <li> {{ course }} </li>

 {% endfor %}

 </li>

 {% endfor %}

</ul>
