How can we transform the state’s public education system so kids get the wraparound services they desperately need? That’s one of the topics in Episode 2 of the CharterNation Podcast which features a Change Makers interview with Maria Echaveste, the President and CEO of the Opportunity Institute based in Berkeley. Ms. Echaveste was a former aide to President Bill Clinton during the inception and passage of federal charter school legislation. She also reflects on that time in public education.
Also, CharterNation Podcast host Ana Tintocalis is joined by CCSA's Director of Data Analysis Jonathan Slakey and Learn4Life's Caprice Young to talk about charter school enrollment trends in the state.
