What We’re Watching: Eric A. Hanushek and Paul E. Peterson on the State of the Union 2013

Eric A. Hanushek and Paul E. Peterson discuss the education proposals in President Obama’s State of the Union Address of 2013. The missing discussion of K-12 schools was remarkable, given the need to improve our schools. While preschool and college readiness were mentioned, the federal government has little to do with these except for its Head Start program – which has not been an effective educational program.

This is the first in a series of videos featuring Hanushek and Peterson produced by the Hoover Institution.
