On this Memorial Day weekend edition of the Dropout Nation Podcast, RiShawn Biddle offers five key questions families should ask in order to help their kids stay on the path to success in school and in life. From asking a teacher for specifics on what their child should work on during the summer, to asking principals if they know the areas of learning Common Core reading and math standards specify for each grade, you can take power for your children as well as for all of our kids.

On this week’s Dropout Nation Podcast,  I advise parents and other caregivers on how to improve education for their children through a few simple questions. Even as school reform has provided new tools for parents, they still need ways to use them for the advantage of their children. Asking the right questions will give caring adults the ability to improve education for their child and for all children — and further sustain school reform.
