Research Fellow Vicki Alger, author of Failure: The Federal Misedukation of Americas Children appears on the WFTL radio and talks about the state of education in America. Alger advocates for eliminating the US Department of Education and localizing school management by allowing parents to have a choice of schoolsand having schools compete for students. Public schools should not be laboratories for federal bureaucrats, says Alger. She talks about returning to teaching core subjects, not Common Core federal mandates.
