Photo: 'The Reformers'A new film is causing a stir in Douglas County. It’s called “The Reformers” and it slams the school district for ushering in changes that it claims are unpopular with many parents.

Host Ryan Warner checks in with CPR Education Reporter Jenny Brundin about it. Also, why are charter schools hiring young teachers who stay for just a couple of years? Brundin also discusses a new book about different parenting practices around the world.
