Show Notes

James Harris & Dirk Tillotson preaching it from the heart of Oakland. They both have views of what is not working in our system of education through YEARS of experience.  James, from his schooling in Oakland to his being President of the Oakland Unified School District and now zealot for all things education for youth in Oakland.  Dirk Tillotson, a brother in arms, Founder and Executive Director of Great School Choices, who has devoted his life to improving schools for poor Black and Hispanic youth in Oakland, New York City, and beyond.  They talk about school funding, public investment in lower-income communities, and how federal money is and could be spent for youth and communities. They dig right in.  They see hope – but it will take a continued press from everyone to do the right thing.
