Ten years after Chile reformed its education system, Sweden followed suit. Andrew Coulson's global journey continues, visiting highly successful private schools in Sweden, London and India, where the resistance to education as a business has lessened. Then as now, Coulson suggests, education was perhaps the only field in which successful entrepreneurship was not celebrated.
The late Andrew Coulson explores the central question about education: is there someplace else where educational excellence is scaling up? The answer is "yes" and it is in America's charter schools. But when charter schools compete with public schools, there is often trouble ahead. Push or Pull explores why excellent private schools in America have not "scaled up" to serve more students.
The first of the three-part series follows the late Andrew Coulson, senior fellow of education policy at Cato Institute's Center for Educational Freedom, to explore the industry of education and the politics that sometimes impede the growth of good schools, good teachers, and the rise of entrepreneurial educators.
