Betsy DeVos, Vouchers and School Privatization
A weekly podcast and radio show on WBAI 99.5 FM NYC, hosted by Leonie Haimson of Class Size Matters, and Daniel Alicea of Educators of NYC. We speak about the issues and controversies affecting public schools and public education in New York City, statewide and nationally.
Jessica Levin of the Education Law Center and Katherine Dunn of the Southern Poverty Law Center talk to Carol Burris about their new organizational joint effort to inform the public about school voucher programs: Public Funds Public Schools. Burris discusses how vouchers are part of the effort of Secretary of Education Betsy De Vos's push to transform public education to a privatized system.
