Listen & Learn: A closer look at what is and isn’t working in education policy

If you missed it over the weekend, make time today to listen to veteran state education policy analyst Kris Nordstrom, who recently released the report, The Unraveling—Poorly-crafted Education Policies Are Failing North Carolina’s Children.

In a radio interview with Policy Watch director Rob Schofield, Nordstrom discusses the unfunded class-size mandate and the folly of folding major policy changes into the state budget bill with little or no debate.


Nordstrom and Senator Jay Chaudhuri will be our special guests next Tuesday (January 30th) at Policy Watch’s first Crucial Conversation for 2018.

Chaudhuri is a member of the Senate Committee on Education and Higher Education and sponsor of legislation to repeal the unfunded class size mandate.
