On this week’s Dropout Nation Podcast, RiShawn Biddle looks at the departures of Teach For America’s Wendy Kopp and Jeanne Allen of the Center for Education Reform from the vanguard of the school reform movement, and explains the importance of bringing new voices into the fold. We need impromptu leaders, Parent Power activists, and others to help continue the transformation of American public education — and established players in the movement must accommodate them.
