Paul E. Peterson on the Importance of School Choice

Hosted byCLT|

On the latest episode of Anchored, our CEO Jeremy Tate is joined by Paul E. Peterson, the Henry Lee Shattuck Professor of Government and Director of the Program on Education Policy and Governance at Harvard University. They discuss the importance of school choice and the gaps in public education that prevent teachers from exploring a student’s full potential. Dr. Peterson is also the author of Saving Schools: From Horace Mann to Virtual Learning. The book traces the story of the rise, decline, and potential resurrection of American public schools. Dr. Peterson highlights countries where school choice is implemented, such as the Netherlands, and how it benefits people of different religions and cultures.
