The King of Stuff welcomes Jason Bedrick, the Director of Policy for EdChoice. Jason just wrote a piece for the Wall Street Journal on teachers' unions fighting against reopening K-12 schools and parents' understandable frustration. Jon and Jason discuss the damage of not re-opening, districts charging for daycare, and the Tocquevillian rise of microschools and "pandemic pods."
Previously, Bedrick was a policy analyst with the Cato Institute's Center for Educational Freedom, served as a legislator in the New Hampshire House of Representatives, and was an education policy research fellow at the Josiah Bartlett Center for Public Policy.
