Podcast Alert: 2020 Democratic Candidates’ Assault on School Choice and Charter Schools

I was recently invited to talk with Inez Stepman of the Independent Women’s Forum on their podcast, “She Thinks.” The conversation focuses on the increasing hostility towards school choice by most of the Democratic candidates for president and on how they have chosen to represent the unions instead of the majority of black and brown parents clamoring for options.

We also talk about why it is that a group of mostly white and suburban moms pleading for gun control receives better and more respectful treatment by the media than a group of black and brown mothers (and grandmothers) pleading for educational options?

I hope you’ll give it a listen.
