Now that all the kids are back in school, it’s a great time to talk about education. Campbell Brown, a journalist with CNN and MSNBC has become a strong advocate for improving our education system and she believes that comes from good charter school programs and school choice. The organization she co-founded, The 74 Million is a great resource for information and news about education.
Campbell relayed her story to Jay and Neal about how she got into all of this and what more needs to be done. She discusses the battles against teachers unions, the success of charter schools in poor areas of New York and Boston as well as the future of education and how it needs to adapt to the changing business and economic climates.
