2021 Episode 33: Early Education Challenges, Straight Talk on Seattle Schools: A Conversation with Dr. Stephan Blanford

Sep 13, 2021 | Podcast

With the start of the school year, all eyes are on our state education system, from early learning up through high school.  Brian Callanan of Seattle Channel talks with special guest Dr. Stephan Blanford, former Seattle School Board Director, about the current challenges of early education, the impact of the new “Fair Start for Kids Act,”  the effect of years of churn and turnover for Seattle School Board and Seattle Public Schools’ superintendent position, and some advice for current school families and SPS leadership. We’ll be back with more city politics analysis with Brian and Kevin Schofield of SCC Insight next week. If you like this podcast, please support us on Patreon
