The Role of the Federal Government in Public Education

Episode first aired on 10/7/2011

The League of Women Voters of Dane County presents as its October 2011 Issues Forum a discussion of the role of the Federal Government in public education. The panel includes Deputy Superintendent Michael Thompson, Department of Public Instruction; Professor Gloria Ladson-Billings, Department of Curriculum & Instruction, UW-Madison; and Associate Professor Doug Harris, Department of Education Policy Studies, UW-Madison. Should the Federal Government mandate standards and curriculum for all schools nationwide, or should individual local school districts exercise more control? The panel will consider these any many other questions.
