SCHOOL MARKETING PODCAST: Schools & PR: Case Study from a Student Protest Gone Right with guest, (@vedo) Richie Escovedo

In the continuing pursuit of on-demand content for school administrators, admissions professionals and marketing and communication directors for private schools, we launch the next episode of the school marketing podcast.  In this episode, I talk with Richie Escovedo, Director of Media and Communications for the Mansfield ISD.  You’ll hear Richie share ideas of “aggressively monitoring the conversation” and “growing bigger ears.“  I think you’ll learn alot from this case study from a “student protest gone right”!  As well, hear Richie share practical tools on using social media in the education world and how some of the roles and functions of the PR professional relate to positions on a baseball team.
