KQED Forum: David Kirp’s Strategy for Public Schools

In rebuilding our public schools, education policy expert David Kirp says we should stick to what works, like quality early-childhood education and creating word-rich curriculums. In other words, avoid getting carried away by quick fixes and the latest trends. His new book, “Improbable Scholars,” tells the success story of Union City, New Jersey, and argues that all our public schools can benefit from what was learned there.
Guest:
David L. Kirp, James D. Marver Professor of Public Policy at the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, member of President Obama’s 2008 education policy transition team, and author of “Improbable Scholars: The Rebirth of a Great American School System and a Strategy for America’s Schools”
