Season 21, Episode 19 Public Schools, Inc.

First Aired: July 3, 2003

"Public Schools, Inc." explores the career of Chris Whittle, founder of Edison Schools, the for-profit company that manages public schools around the country. The trouble is, Edison hasn't been making a profit, and "there's a real question as to whether the model itself is flawed," says reporter John Merrow. Merrow and New York Times business writer Diana B. Henriques profile Whittle and chart Edison's problems in Philadelphia, Chester, Pa. and Wichita (and its successes in Baltimore).
