Your Call: What are the best solutions for improving public education?


On the August 4th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with reporter Kristina Rizga about her new book “Mission High.” Based on test scores, San Francisco’s Mission High is a low performing school even though its graduation, attendance rates, and college enrollment percentages are some of the best in the country. What does this reveal about education reform? How should true success be measured? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
