Rising Up With Sonali

What Is At Stake For Public Education Under Trump?

Democrats are demanding a second hearing for Education Secretary nominee Betsy DeVos, the Michigan billionaire who seems to know little about public education. We’ll turn to our education correspondent Kevin Kumashiro about the ins and outs of the debate over DeVos. And, Brave New Films presents a new short film focusing on DeVos’ impact on Michigan’s public education system. Plus award winning veteran journalist and author Stephen Kinzer joins us to trace the history of the debates over US imperialism through his new book The True Flag: Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain, and the Birth of American Empire.

Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
