Recently on The Engine I spoke with Yolanda Cancel, who is a political organizer and member of the Parent Teacher Student Organization at SciTech in Springfield. Yolanda and I discuss what the administration is doing right, and what they could do better to serve students. We also discuss the difficult choices facing parents when it comes to navigating the challenges of the school system. To be fair, Springfield is not the only challenged school district, but as it’s a major metropolitan area for our region, its current state of affairs deserves our attention. If you have a child in Springfield, or if you’re a business owner concerned about your future workforce, listen in to what Yolanda has to say.
