Dr. Berliner explains how the mythical failure of public education has been created and perpetuated in large part by political and economic interests who stand to gain from its destruction. They expose a rapidly expanding variety of organizations and media that intentionally misrepresent facts.
JoAnne H.: I don't think the socio-economic status determines whether someone can be successful in school.
David B.: You're wrong, JoAnne.
