Don Nielsen (a senior fellow at the Discovery Institute in Seattle) formerly served as Seattle School Board president. Nielsen joins Debra to discuss his recently published book, Every School: One Citizen's Guide to Transforming Education, presenting a highly informed, broad-view analysis of the public education system. Nielsen promises no pie-in-the-sky panacea, but instead suggests productive steps in the right direction. Demonstrating reasoned commonsense, supported by sound research, he offers reflective thought with respect to seemingly insurmountable problems. No self-aggrandizing "sage on the stage," Nielsen is a pragmatist, not to mention a gracious communicator. His conclusions are likely to introduce listeners to new perspectives they have yet to ponder. Whether you agree or disagree with his guide to transforming education, you will learn something new--and perhaps even discern a flicker of light at the end of the tunnel!
