As you read more about the battles over Parent Power, feel free to listen to this Dropout Nation Podcast from last May on why we need to bring families to their rightful places as kings and lead decision-makers in education. Now, more than ever, the disdain shown towards parents — including those from poor and minority communities — must end in order to end the nation’s education and dropout crises.

It is also available on iTunes, Blubrry, the Education Podcast NetworkZune Marketplace and PodBean. Also download to your phone with BlackBerry podcast software and Google Reader.
