Innovative education for our kids...at a statewide level

Is the way we educate our children outdated? Are there better ways, without throwing it all out and starting over? Today I interview Chris Reykdal, the Superintendent of Public Instruction for the State of Washington. He's the top guy in the state over public education. And we talk about Running Start, where juniors and seniors in high school actually take classes at community colleges, paid for by the high school. I also ask him about home schooling, and how the state integrates them into the public system. And I directly ask him if the very system he oversees needs fundamental change - you might be surprised at his answer. A candid conversation about how one state is innovating their approach to educating kids.
