Leid Stories – Election 2016: Political Inevitabilities; Turning Things Around in Detroit – 05.10.16

Leid Stories continues yesterday’s discussion about developing alternatives to the political “inevitabilities” we face in this presidential election year.

Also, we look to Detroit, where, in the face of awesome challenges to community-controlled education and just about everything governing daily life, there is organized resistance, and it is gaining ground. Dr. Thomas Pedroni, associate professor of curriculum studies and policy sociology at Wayne State University, discusses ways in which the community is mobilizing to assure a quality education for Detroit’s schoolchildren.
