Steve Forbes is spot-on!

Listen to an old-school Republican telling it like it is on school choice, flat tax, entitlement reform, elminating bureaucrats, and why a stable currency is vital. He's got some very interesting ideas on education: Why not focus on 1 subject at a time in order to let it set in? Don't take off the summer so that you can finish college in 3 years?

One sided

I went into the podcast hoping to hear about a variety of solution to help fix public education but all this podcast seems to be is propaganda for school vouchers and charter schools. There really hasn’t been any talk about actually fixing public schools it’s been more about how we should pull away from them, not a fan.
