It may come off as specialized for a lot of folks (it shouldn’t be), but NR’s weekly “education” podcast, Reality Check with Jeanne Allen, consistently offers an exceptional interview about the ups and downs of education reform. Particularly interesting is when Jeanne has a conversation with a guest who is an education entrepreneur, discussing new, but tested ideas that provide real relief and alternatives to America’s public-education morass.
The latest episode is a must-listen: The guest is Laura Sandefur, the co-founder (with her husband Jeff) of Acton Academy. Folks, these people have turned education upside down, and very much for the better. It’s quite inspiring. Listen to the podcast here.
