featuring Neal McCluskey discussing his book, Feds in the Classroom.

Most proposals for federal reform in education call for a nip here and a tuck there, but little else. That won’t do, according to Cato education analyst Neal McCluskey’s new book, Feds in the Classroom: How Big Government Corrupts, Cripples and Compromises American Education. After examining Washington’s education track record and the largely forgotten history of American schooling, McCluskey concludes that only two things—ceasing federal education involvement and implementing universal school choice—can get our kids the education they need.
