The Rochester Coalition for Public Education is local organization aiming to educate the public, educators, and policy makers about education research -- and how it can improve outcomes in the Rochester City School District. The coalition has developed a set of recommendations for the RCSD and the Board of Regents.
We sit down with coalition members to discuss the debate over a state takeover or mayoral control, and the most effective path forward. In studio:
- Henry Padron, retired school #12 Kindergarten teacher and former RCSD bilingual director
- Vicki Robertson, RCSD parent, and School Based Planning Team member at Wilson Commencement
- Dan Drmacich, coalition coordinator and retired principal of School Without Walls
