    Philadelphia’s student population has been much in the news lately, especially regarding adults’ plans for their schooling and in recent surges of violence along South Street, the Gallery Mall and South Philadelphia High School. On today’s Radio Times, Marty will talk to two student activist-leaders involved with the Philadelphia Student Union, a youth-led organization working to build a youth movement to make changes in the Philadelphia school district. ZAKIA ROYSTER is a senior at Sayre High School and DAN JONES is a senior at Masterman High School, and both create content for the Student Union’s youth-produced radio show, On Blast.
