Education Reform

Saturday morning at 8am on WCLK's The Local Take I spoke with Kisha Bird, director of Youth policy with CLASP - the Center for Law and Social Policy. This is part of our our ongoing conversation about the school to prison pipeline and the struggles for justice and equality for the young people in our community.  

The Local Take this week speaks with Kelli Bacote Ross about the BOOK organization (Better Outcomes for Our Kids) and their grassroots efforts to reform our education system. Ms. Ross mentions that there are 4 educational tracks - traditional public schools, public charter schools, home schooling and public virtual schools. She speaks about parents who feel that they do not have a voice or a choice.  She also mentions that many parents don't know what "high performing school" really means.
