On this week’s Dropout Nation Podcast, RiShawn Biddle discusses the need for Beltway school reformers and education traditionalists to embrace a more-expansive view of school choice and Parent Power. Families need the power to transform schools in their own communities — as well as the ability to escape failure mills — in order to shape education for the children they love.
