Lessons from a Half-Century of Federal Efforts to Improve America’s Schools

On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Pejman Yousefzadeh and I are joined by Andrew Kelly, to discuss Sticks and the Bully Pulpit: Lessons from a Half-Century of Federal Efforts to Improve America’s Schools.  In the podcast we discuss the federal role in education and ways to move past traditional, and often stale, debating points regarding the federal government’s responsibilities in education policy (what works versus what doesn’t, the constitutionality of federal involvement, etc.).

Listen to the podcast.
