On this week’s Dropout Nation Podcast, Editor RiShawn Biddle examines the late James Q. Wilson’s and George Kelling’s theory on stemming crime and explains why reformers should embrace it in overhauling American public education. Addressing the issues that lead to schools becoming failure mills, dropout factories, and warehouses of mediocrity is one of the three key ways we give all children cultures of geniuses in which they can all succeed.
