We have this running feature in Street called Overheard At Penn. If you’re a regular reader, you know that like 4 out of 5 are about what’s wrong with the education system and how we can fix it.
The Wall Street Journal must be reading all the time, because they noticed it’s a big deal at Penn. We guess it’s kind of our “thing.” So they asked our girl Amy to speak about that subject with Joel Klein, chancellor of the New York City Department of Education, and Christopher Edley Jr., dean of the law school at the University of California at Berkeley.
Check here for a video of the panel and an edited transcript of the discussion. Lots of interesting stuff – there’s even a mention of Sputnik!
