Reclaiming Public Education

Long before Matt Brouillette entered the world of public policy and politics, he was a middle school and high school history teacher. Today, education reform remains his primary passion.

As the COVID-19 pandemic has upended the educational landscape, more and more parents are considering options other than traditional brick-and-mortar public schools for their children. Now more than ever, we should revisit the original purpose of public education—and reclaim our education system for that purpose.

Several years ago, Matt wrote a short piece called “Reclaiming Public Education.” The latest Brews & Views episode is an audio version of that piece.
