Podcast: British Academies Promote Case for School Autonomy

My first professional podcast experience with Ben DeGrow, Senior Education Policy Analyst at the Denver-based Independence Institute's Education Policy Center as host:

British Academies Promote Case for School Autonomy

Denver-based education policy consultant Gina Schlieman discusses a recent article in The Economist that highlights the positive results from Great Britain’s expansion of academies, publicly-funded schools that have been given greater autonomy. Schlieman calls on her recent graduate-level studies at the London School of Economics to provide some uniquely informed insights regarding what Colorado and other states ought to glean from this emerging British education success story.
