Episode 2: Let’s hear from the kids - The Path Forward: Dayton Schools podcast

As all the adults debate what needs to be done to improve Dayton Public Schools, what do the students think? 

DPS was criticized at its recent town hall meeting for not soliciting student input as it crafts its strategic plan. It came up again at a more-recent community event sponsored by the Dayton Daily News. 

The Path Forward: The region must rally to fix the Dayton Public Schools

Earlier this year, we profiled five students who represent the best of the district. In recorded interviews with four of them, we also asked them – DPS’ best and brightest – what’s missing from the public’s discussion of their school. 

Their answers are the subject of our newest episode of the podcast, The Path Forward: Dayton Schools. 

What do you think? Join the conversation on our Path Forward: Dayton Schools Facebook group. 

The podcast is part of our Path Forward initiative, which seeks to spur the community to seek solutions to our most pressing problems, including not just Dayton schools but also the addiction crisis, and positioning our economy for the future.
