In The Corrupt Classroom, Lance will explore these and other issues to educate and inspire parents and policymakers who may be unaware of the non-academic ways in which schools are failing.

Lance Izumi, Senior Director of PRI’s Center for Education and Koret Senior Fellow in Education Studies, will discuss his soon-to-be-released book The Corrupt Classroom. The poor performance of our nation’s public schools is often cited by education reform advocates in favor of school choice. Yet, there are many equally or even more important reasons for supporting school-choice options for parents and their children. Indeed, there is an ever-growing array of disturbing non-academic developments occurring in public schools and school systems: the politicization of curricula and teaching, teacher-quality problems, safety and discipline issues, fiscal mismanagement, special-interest control of education policymaking bodies, and a systemic inability to address parental concerns, among others.
