On this week’s Dropout Nation Podcast, RiShawn Biddle looks beyond the Republican and Democratic conventions (and the sparring between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney) to explain why it will take bipartisanship in order to advance systemic reform. The fact that power relationships and longstanding ties that keep some in the thrall of traditionalist thinking means that reformers must embrace the kind of single-issue voter thinking that builds alliances for helping all children succeed.
