In this week’s podcast, Mike Petrilli welcomes guest host Dan Scoggin, founder of Great Hearts Academies charter schools. They discuss whether Senator Bernie Sanders misunderstands how charter schools function, how schools like Great Hearts can serve students from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds, and what the U.S. Department of Education might look like if Ben Carson were Secretary. In the Research Minute, Amber Northern examines the long term effects of disruptive peers in American classrooms.
