Research Fellow Vicki Alger speaks with nationally syndicated Dr. Drew Pinsky on his radio show about her latest book, Failure: The Federal Misedukation of Americas Children. Alger talks about ending the Department of Education, which has failed America's students since the department was formed in 1979. The bureaucracy that is added to administrator's duties by the Department of Education is harming teachers and students. Local school districts and the states are better suited to know the needs of parents and students, not federal bureaucrats in Washington, DC, says Alger.
