Let’s talk about real solutions. What can be done to fix our broken education system and offer real options to American families? On this episode Mary Clare is joined by Congressman Ted Budd (NC-13) to discuss the Republican Study Committee’s new report, “Reclaiming the American Dream: Proposals to Empower the Workers of Today and Tomorrow.” Then Mary Clare talks to The Heritage Foundation’s Jonathan Butcher about the issue of disparate impact in our schools. Jonathan poses an important question: should public policy be based on political narratives or facts?


On this episode of COVID and the Classroom Mary Clare sits down with two incredible moms, Bethany Mandel and Jenny Clark. Bethany is a homeschool mom and Jenny’s children are doing pod learning at home and enrolled in Arizona’s Empowerment Scholarship program. We tackle some homeschooling stereotypes. Are homeschooled kids, as they are referred to in the movie Mean Girls, homeschooled jungle freaks? Bethany and Jenny also offer advice for parents looking into homeschooling for the first time due to the pandemic.
