Arizona Week: Focus on Education

Posted By on Sun, Apr 10, 2011 at 4:11 PM

Mike Chihak invited me to talk about education on Friday's Arizona Week. The episode is an instructive look at how the latest budget cuts are going to result in larger class sizes, fewer books and less staff support. I learned something new myself: This new idea of "blended" education that somehow involves spending a few days a week in the classroom and other days learning on the Internet. (David Safier, can you help out, please?)

I'm absolutely sure that schools need to retool for the 21st century, but it's tough to innovate when you're struggling to just keep the doors open.
