Recent LATimes op-ed by Cory Booker, John Doerr and Ted Mitchell offers up some good education advice for the next President. The authors call for innovation when trying to solve the problem of America’s failing educational system:

Cory Booker will be featured in one of our upcoming podcasts, so stay tuned for that! And be sure to check out the article in the meantime.
