Fredrik deBoer on the Cult of Smart

Fredrik deBoer discusses his book The Cult of Smart with host Russ Roberts. He argues that there is little that can be done to change the distribution of success in K-12 education, and that educational reforms like charter schools and No Child Left Behind are doomed to fail. DeBoer, self-described Marxist, makes the case for a radical re-imagining of the U.S. economy.
