Perspectives on National School Choice Week, plus #DCision14

In honor of “National [Understanding] School Choice [& Who Funds It] Week,” the Education Town Hall is joined this week by Marla Kilfoyle, General Manager for the Badass Teachers’ association, and Melissa Tomlinson, made famous as the teacher who was photographed with Governor Chris Christie’s finger pointed in her face. They will speak about school choice and its effect on public school systems.
