Rivera on ‘Radio Times’: Education can ‘build a village again around our children’

This article was originally published in The Notebook. In August 2020, The Notebook became Chalkbeat Philadelphia.

Pennsylvania Education Secretary Pedro Rivera appeared on Radio Times (WHYY-FM)today to discuss budgets, equitable school funding, PSSA score drops, community (non)investment, and how rigorous academic standards like the Common Core and PA Core standards "are based on upper-class, middle-class values."

Chalkbeat is a nonprofit newsroom dedicated to providing the information families and educators need, but this kind of work isn't possible without your help.
