The Education Exchange: Condoleezza Rice on the “Deep Visceral Wounds of Slavery”

“We’ve got to have a bumper sticker for the school choice movement, and it’s got to be, ‘save the kid.’ Not save the schools; save the kids,” the former secretary of state says.

The 66th Secretary of State and The Denning Professor in Global Business and the Economy at Stanford University, Condoleeza Rice, joins Paul E. Peterson to discuss how school choice can help lower-income families get more of out the public education system, and how systemic change will be necessary to improve racial equality in America.

Rice’s op-ed in the Washington Post,This moment cries out for us to confront race in America,” is available now.
