What’s the reason why Democrats and Republicans are afraid to discuss education in their stump speeches or debates? Will the new Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) federal education bill be better than No Child Left Behind? What are some positive attributes of charter schools?
In this Teach Thought podcast episode Drew Perkins (Director of Professional Development at TeachThought) and Julian Vasquez Heilig answer these questions and discuss the factors that are driving education reform, charter schools, poverty and the politics behind it all. Also among the topics we broached: charter schools and how to evaluate them, the root cause of our problems in education, and the future of education reform over the next ten years.
