Education Reform in Washington and in Los Angeles

Hosted by

The Los Angeles Unified School District has adopted a policy of massive change by offering control of many campuses to groups of outsiders as well as insiders. The deadline for take-over applications was midnight last night. We get a progress report. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, President Obama's "Race to the Top" in education features charter schools and standardized tests to evaluate teacher performance. Will it improve the much-criticized "No Child Left Behind" or is it the same — only more so?
