Podcast: Schooled Season 2
Posted by WHYY 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. In Season 2 of Schooled, we follow the story of Jovan Weaver, who attended Philly public schools and overcame a traumatic childhood to become Wister’s new principal. His goal: create a school good enough for his own children to attend.
