I am a news junky, and no matter how much I try to tell myself to look away when I see the education posts, I can't.
This one caught my eye, in part because it was unfinished, and in part because these are the conversations more stakeholders need to be in on. I am glad students' voices are trying to be included, albeit somewhat to very coached. But we need more teacher, parent and neighbor voices included too.
