Madsplainers RIVER

In the weekly Madsplainers podcast feature "On the Cover," Cap Times podcast producer Natalie Yahr gets the scoop from the reporters behind our latest cover stories.

This week, Cap Times K-12 education reporter Scott Girard breaks down his cover story, explaining how a December altercation at a Madison elementary school led parents to question school leadership, and what this incident tells us about the sometimes fragile relationships between families and schools.
