Latest issue of the IDRA Newsletter – This month’s focus: IDRA’s 45th Anniversary

Schools can matter and succeed with a new vision created by people who believe that all children are valuable, that all people can contribute, and that public education can indeed change things, including futures.” – Dr. María “Cuca” Robledo Montecel, IDRA President and CEO
