Real Education Reform
There is much to criticize in the Bush administration's education program "No Child Left Behind," a program what has been continued under Obama and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. But what would a truly progressive education policy be like? What would be the goals and values of a school system that met the needs of students and their communties? Stan Karp talks on these matters with the Old Mole's Bill Resnick. Karp writes frequently for Rethinking Schools as their expert on federal education policy.
