As you read the latest This is Dropout Nation on the importance of addressing foster care as part of school reform, listen to this rebroadcast of the Dropout Nation Podcast from January 2010 discussing the other “canaries in the coal mine of education”. Addressing special education, the overdiagnosis of learning disabilities and reforming America’s juvenile justice system are as much keys in stemming the dropout crisis as expanding school choice and improving teacher quality.
