Nicole Yohalem, the Forum's special projects director, ponders that in a blog where she observes, "As a youth development professional by training and a parent of school-age children, the narrow definition of success that currently drives schooling (grades and standardized test scores) has me worried in a more acute and personal way than ever before."

The podcast features Jane Quinn, vice president and director of the National Center for Community Schools at the Children's Aid Society, discussing the community schools movement and her diverse career in youth work and education. The podcast and blog are here.
