Klonsky & Richmond Debate Benefits Of Community Involvement

Round 2 of Denver's effort to revamp some of its lowest performing schools will include lots more community involvements, says the district supt. in this Denver Post story (Public to drive school reforms) -- a stark contrast to past reforms that were (or were considered to be) top down efforts.

But not everyone buys the community Kool-Aid.  As you'll see, Chicago-based Mike Klonsky and Greg Richmond disagree somewhat about whether community involvement is key (or was in Chicago's earlier reform efforts), and folks in Denver aren't even sure if more community involvement makes the difference.
