Newspapers May Be In Decline, But Not Videos or Podcasts

Mike Petrilli talks with Linda Perlstein of the Education Writers Association about what the decline of newspapers means for education coverage in a new video on our website.

And in this week’s podcast, Paul Peterson and Chester Finn talk about two new reports. The first report, released by the Fordham Institute last week, identifies 2800 public schools that are only attended by prosperous kids. These schools are nominally public, but are in fact more exclusive than any private school. The second report, published by the Brookings Institution, looks at ways of expanding choice and competition, including expanding public school choice to break down residential barriers that keep many poor kids from attending better schools.
