An interivew with Joel Turtel

Today's referenced Michael Shaughnessy's interview of Joel Turtel. Joel wrote Public Schools, Public Menace: How Public Schools Lie to Parents and Betray Our Children. It is a very powerful interview. John Stossel recently reported on a 20/20 report "Stupid in America" about problems with public education. Joel makes a much stronger case than John Stossel about great problems with public schools. One of the the points Joel spends time on is how most parents think their children are getting an good education, when the students are being crippled in their ability to read or do basic math. Joel has a long list of ways public schools are betraying the children.

Both my wife and I have started Joel's book. It is well written and one of us will try to get a review up in the next month or so.
