EdNext Podcast: What Does the Public Want Taught?

Paul E. Peterson, Martin R. West and Michael B. Henderson discuss the results of the 2015 Education Next-PEPG Poll, with a focus on what the public thinks should be emphasized more in school.

The short answer is that the public wants more emphasis on math, more emphasis on reading, and more emphasis on the arts and other subjects. The one thing the public doesn’t want more emphasis on: sports!

The EdNext Podcast is available on iTunes, Soundcloud, Stitcher and here every Wednesday.
