This is EdFix, a podcast about the practice and promise of education. Michael Feuer, host and Dean of GW's Graduate School of Education and Human Development, talks with the people who care about what’s needed to improve our schools and colleges. Researchers, practitioners, and policymakers share effective strategies and provocative ideas. And he explores ways to connect their worlds to take on some of education’s most complex issues.

Education is the greatest contributor to ​​our nation's economic and social progress. It requires knowledge, agility, and optimism ​from many sources in order to learn from ​our successes and to address ​what might not be working up to potential. ​From preschool to postsecondary, get your fix with EdFix!

In the United States, approximately 5% of children attend charter schools. So why are these schools such a hot topic among educators, advocates, policy makers, politicians, and parents? Dr. Iris Rotberg and Dr. Joshua Glazer, editors of the book Choosing Charters - Better Schools or More Segregation?, discuss the goals, challenges, and outcomes of the charter movement from different perspectives based on their research in the field.
