What's the best way to bypass the centralized bureaucracies that run America's school system? Reason Foundation Director of Education Lisa Snell is an advocate of simply attaching money to kids, so when a student leaves a failing school so does a portion of its funding.
Reason.tv sat down with Snell to talk about how this simple reform can transform public education.
This interview is part of National School Choice Week, a non-partisan initiative to raise awareness of how competition and choice can transform K-12 education.
Approximately 2 minutes. Filmed by Jim Epstein and Meredith Bragg, and edited by Epstein. Interview by Nick Gillespie.
