Better than Rachel Maddow w/Rick Perry: Berkowitz w/Robin Steans on Web and Cable

Robin Steans [Advance Illinois]: …Any charter school starts with a group of students and they look at them and say, our job is to get the kids from where they are today to where we want them to be…and there is nothing to stop us, except our own imagination…there is a burden and there is an urgency and there is an energy that comes with knowing that the only thing standing between you and meeting your kids’ needs is your own thinking and your own energy.
This week’s Chicago Metro suburban edition of "Public Affairs with Jeff Berkowitz," [airing schedule below], features Robin Steans, who has spent sixteen years focusing on education reform, taught in public high schools in Boston, San Francisco and Chicago, received a J.D.
