“Rock The Schools with Citizen Stewart”

Power To Parents and Students” with special guest parent Latasha Gandy 

 Minneapolis, MN (June 8, 2015) – Rock the Schools with Citizen Stewart education reform activism podcast with special guest parent Latasha Gandy discussing the need for school reform efforts to be led by parents and students who are most effected, and the challenges developing parent power in the movement.

rock_the_schools_3Stewart’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?    

Rock The Schools with Citizen Stewart is available on iHeartRadio’s Twin Cities News Talk podcast network, iTunes and under podcast at citizenstewart.org and brought to you by EducationPost.org.

Stewart is a writer, speaker, essayist and education activist from Minnesota. Stewart began recording his podcast show in early March and releases a new episode weekly.
