HeadLocke Episode 023: Private Education: Rhetoric and Reality

00:00 / 00:16:13

Many public school advocates and opponents of private school vouchers dismiss private education based on their belief that private schools offer an academically inferior, socially isolating, and dangerously dogmatic education.  They contend that that private education homogenizes children, employing curricula that insulates them from diverse people and viewpoints. But those who benefited from private school education usually tell a much different story.  This week, we are fortunate to have a guest who attended both a private elementary and secondary school and a public university.  Research intern Rebekah Howard joins Terry to discuss her experiences at Wake Christian Academy, a private school near Raleigh, N.C., and N.C. State University.
