Reforming education in America is our topic in this segment of Vocal Point. Dr. Gary Wolfram is a professor of economics at Hillsdale College in Michigan. Recently he wrote a piece for edweek.com (which focuses on educational issues) on the importance of school choice—especially for poor, inner city children. The article is called: “Make Public Education a Market Economy—Not a Socialist One.” The subtitle says: “Introducing charter schools will allow us to reclaim the true purpose of education in a democratic society.” Gary Wolfram joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss badly needed educational reform. www.hillsdale.edu.
