Podcast: The religious charter school debate, with Kathleen Porter-Magee

Mike Petrilli, the president of the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, hosted Kathleen on the Education Gadfly Show to talk about the debate over religious charter schools. Mike and Kathleen’s segment lasts for the first eleven minutes, followed by Amber Northern’s “Research Minute” for the remainder of the episode. Petrilli and Porter-Magee discuss the potential questions and concerns of introducing religious charter schools from both a religious liberty standpoint and practical lens.
