Podcast: Schooled Season 2

Posted on May 7, 2018

John Wister Elementary is a tiny school in a poor Philadelphia neighborhood. And it sparked a huge, citywide debate. After months of bitter acrimony, district leaders pushed out the school’s faculty and gave control of Wister to a charter organization.

His goal: create a school good enough for his own children to attend.
