Dropout Nation Podcast CoverOn this week’s Dropout Nation Podcast, I call upon reformers and defenders of traditional public education’s status quo to embrace the full overhaul of our nation’s public education system. Each day, 1,800 kids drop out into poverty and into prison — one will drop out even before you finish reading this paragraph. And yet, we don’t offer education that is world-class in any way in order to stem this crisis. Our kids — and America — deserve better.
