“Rock The Schools with Citizen Stewart” Education Reform Activism Podcast Episode 13A Contract For Student Achievement with special guests, education activist Lynnell Mickelson and MinnPost’s education reporter, Beth Hawkins.  

Minneapolirts episdoe 13s, MN (June 1, 2015) – Rock the Schools with Citizen Stewart education reform activism podcast with special guests, education activist Lynnell Mickelson and MinnPost’s education Reporter, Beth Hawkins indulging Citizen Stewart in a discussion about the mysterious contract negotiation process between teachers and school districts, and what it looks like when citizens and media get inside.

Stewart’s mission with “Rock The Schools” is to “create a greater educational opportunity for black communities by grounding the school reform debate in black history and transformative black thought.” Stewart believes “this is done by challenging the dominant trope of anti-school reform activism, and illustrating connections between the liberationist principles of yesterday’s black struggles, and today’s education proposals (e.g. “privatization,” school choice, and charter schools).” Stewart’s tag “Public education for an educated public” begs the question of accountability . . . does public education meet the standards of an educated public when students graduate well below standards required to get a higher education?
