On this week’s Dropout Nation Podcast, RiShawn Biddle turns attention to the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and James Meredith’s graduation from Old Miss, then discusses the lessons reformers can learn from the last century’s civil rights struggle. Embracing new voices in the school reform movement, along with strong advocacy, are among the steps needed to transform American public education.
