'Shop Talk': It's All About Education
As part of Tell Me More's month-long back-to-school focus on education, host Michel Martin talks education with the guys in the barbershop. Included in the discussion are the movie ?Waiting for Superman,? and the travails of embattled DC Public Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee, and the angry dad who faced down his daughter?s bullies. Joining the conversation are Jimi Izrael, a freelance journalist and Presidential Fellow at Case Western Reserve University; Lester Spence, a professor of Political Science at Johns Hopkins University and home schooled his children; Claudio Sanchez, NPR?s education correspondent and former schoolteacher; and Jay Mathews, education columnist for The Washington Post.
