On this week’s Dropout Nation Podcast, RiShawn Biddle looks at how the nation’s education crisis contributes to homelessness and social decay that hurts the nation’s cities. Building cultures of genius that nurture the potential of our children — especially those from homeless backgrounds — is critical to keeping the adults of tomorrow off the streets and on the path to lifelong success.
