We’re joined by Alisa Algava, former director of the Randolph School, Ada Rosario Dolch, retired high school principal, and Margaret Ryan from the Harlem Link Charter School. Our panelists are all alumnae of Bank Street College. Plus, Slate’s Ken Early describes what it was like in the stadium when Brazil fans learned a hard truth.
