Austerity measures and budget cuts are crippling the quality of public education.  Salaries are so low that migrant workers are in charge of American classrooms. As walkouts are spreading across the country, a Teacher of the Year tells Warren the needle is finally moving in Arizona. He also gets an evaluation of Trump Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.
