Jack Schneider, Jennifer Berkshire

Inside the libertarian plot to tear down public education.

Historian Jack Schneider and journalist Jennifer Berkshire explore the right's systematic, decades-long attack on public schools - through the defunding of districtions and demoralizing students, educators and parents - in partnership with a neoliberal Democratic Party willing to sell out children and workers for the same libertarian elites.

Jack and Jennifer are authors of the book A Wolf at the Schoolhouse Door: The Dismantling of Public Education and the Future of School from The New Press.
