Jaime and Kevin are back in the studio together this week, as promised. This week our two favorite friends are talking about the public education system in America. Is it viable? Is it an institution for institutions sake? Can it be done differently or better? Tune in as they discuss state versus federal involvement in the public system, where it came from, and some possible ways forward. 

Their expertise in regards to Public education in America? Both are products of the very system they are discussing, have children who have gone through it, and did some quick internet searches to answer some questions. 

Their qualifications to discuss the topic? Random life experience and caffeination during recording sessions.

Basically, anything they discuss? Don’t take their word for it - but they hope you enjoy the show!
