On this week’s Dropout Nation Podcast, RiShawn Biddle looks back at the evangelical efforts of William Wilberforce and others to end the slave trade, and explains why and how school reformers should embrace their example. It is as critical for reformer to strongly, smartly, and tactically make the moral and intellectual case for transforming American public education as Wilberforce did for ending slavery more than two centuries ago.
