EdNext Book Club: Paul Peterson’s Saving Schools

For more than four decades, Paul Peterson has been one of America’s leading political scientists. And for two decades, he’s been one of the leading advocates for increased parental choice in education. In his latest book, Saving Schools: From Horace Mann to Virtual Learning, Peterson examines the history of American education through the lens of six great heroes. Today we’ll talk with Paul about these heroes, the impact they had on our schools, and his optimism that digital learning might finally succeed where so many other reform efforts failed.
