Neal McCluskey joins us for a conversation about public education in America. How did it begin? And why doesn’t it work as well as we want it to?

Prior to arriving at Cato, McCluskey served in the U.S. Army, taught high school English, and was a freelance reporter covering municipal government and education in suburban New Jersey. McCluskey is the author of the book Feds in the Classroom: How Big Government Corrupts, Cripples, and Compromises American Education (2007).
Jason Bedrick joins us to talk about school choice in the United States. What’s wrong with our current public schooling model and how will more choice fix it?
