D.C.'s Education Debate Hits The RNC

D.C.'s Education Debate Hits The RNC

Patrick Mara, a Republican member of D.C.'s State Board of Education, joins us in the studio.

Democrats controlled all the local levers of power in Washington, D.C., when the city started pursuing an aggressive education reform policy. But conservatives across the country have emerged as some of the most enthusiastic supporters of those reforms, which rankled traditional Democratic allies in teachers unions. We chat with a local delegate at the Republican National Convention who's been involved in D.C.'s education debates.
