On this week’s Dropout Nation Podcast, RiShawn Biddle observes how Christians proudly declare their faith on Ash Wednesday, and explains why reformers should boldly stand for their positive, moral vision for helping all children succeed in school and in life. It is important to continually articulate why we must transform American public education — and end the nation’s education crisis — even amid the increasingly desperate nastiness of traditionalists defending an amoral and impoverished vision.
