In some states, charter schools can design their own retirement plans for teachers.

In this episode, Michael Podgursky, professor of economics at the University of Missouri–Columbia, joins Marty West to discuss what we can learn from charter innovation in this area.

Podgursky, Susan Aud Pendergrass and Kevin Hesla, are the authors of “Pensions Under Pressure: Charter innovation in teacher retirement benefits” in the Spring 2018 issue of EdNext.

The EdNext Podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Soundcloud, Stitcher and here every Wednesday.
