Better than Bill O'Reilly w/Barack Obama: Berkowitz w/ Ed Choice Illinois' Myles Mendoza on fixing public education, Cable and soon on Web

Tonight’s Chicago Metro North and Northwest suburban edition of “Public Affairs,” features Myles Mendoza, Executive Director of Ed Choice Illinois. The program airs in its usual 8:30 pm time slot in 24 North and Northwest Chicago Metro suburbs (See below).

Myles Mendoza debates and discusses with show host Jeff Berkowitz how to give more choice to parents over where and how their kids are educated.  Among the issues discussed is how “free” entry should be by private entities into the endeavor of educating kids at the primary (K-8) and secondary (9-12) education levels; whether we should “relinquish and regulate,” in the area of K-12 education; the capacity of private schools to accept new students;  how few kids actually read at grade level in the public schools; and how competition and innovation (promoted by choice) would address many of the ills of public education.

Also covered in the program is the Inaugural Club Ed event sponsored by Ed Choice Illinois and others and at which speakers Derrell Bradford and Kevin Chavous will critique the promise and pitfalls of several key education policies in the public debate today.  The Club Ed event is to be held this Friday, March 28 at 9:30 am, 22 West Washington, Chicago, IL. Those planning to attend should RSVP
