Classnotes Podcast (January 4, 2007) Schools are losing a student every three minutes. This lack of school holding power affects everyone. But when parents, families and others are actively involved as partners with their schools, students thrive and the community itself is made stronger. Dr. María “Cuca” Robledo Montecel, IDRA’s executive director, discusses the essence of the problem and what can be taken to guarantee graduation for every student. Cuca is interviewed by Bradley Scott, Ph.D., director of the IDRA South Central Collaborative for Equity.
