When it comes to fixing America's schools, there's no shortage of ideas. Firing principals, opening charter schools, and mandating proficiency tests have all been tried--with mixed results. Now that Ohio won a big chunk of federal money by promising to do these things, will schools get any better?
Diane Ravitch, author of The Death and Life of the Great American School System joins us to talk about what works, what doesn't, and how to get the biggest bang for the education buck.
