Situation in this country well you went through it -- -- yourself and it's not a decade ago.
You you -- this series you've been in America.
You know -- for it.
Well probably because 700 union teachers showed up outside my office screaming -- when you stop salt.
You should teach teachers aren't the problem and teachers aren't the problem with the teachers unions the problem.
Well I've learned -- that it's even in states with weak unions there's a problem because what reformers called the blob just.
Resistance -- get in any government monopoly in any monopoly where nobody has to change they felt the administrators the school boards the PTAs.
They just don't want competition this.
Applications for children.
And yet it's what makes everything better that he can't keep teaching kids.
-- just keep teaching dangerous teachers can teach you when they get paid not to teach because nobody can fire them.
And you've done about -- and this is interesting to me and I read the same year in the article that we're actually spending more on education.
And the past couple of years so it's the problem not really.
People think it's -- money problem.
But we've tripled spending per student at just the true inflation tripled since I was in college.
Test scores are flat.
We now only in places where they have failing schools like Washington DC.
500 fouled her classroom.
A year and -- -- think how many good -- not including the capital cost to build the classroom.
Think how many good teachers you can hire for 500000.
Dollars and -- who will hit the money go.
-- -- opens it's a government monopoly and this we should learn from the fall with so man in.
They just make resource is disappear.
Well you -- college.
And tonight -- any at 9 o'clock tonight we're gonna get -- see something great we're gonna play a clip of that right now little preview.
In the nation's capital more than a thousand students have gathered to study will ever.
Should these students even be in power.
If they work -- interns -- they exploited.
If there are here illegally should being a student give them a quicker path to citizenship.
Should they take drugs or drink what should the rules -- A trip back to college.
That's our show tonight.
-- -- -- -- -- Well no that was in the hotel about how students through their -- were you thinking about I went -- three Q&A.
An all girls one maybe it's time for that but -- out of his students happened to be in this conference in this hotel -- have to go with a student.
And I and weapons but what do what do you think would be in licensing.
And well I think this.
Intern ship debate is fascinating.
In that the Obama administration now says.
It's illegal Labor Department one more useless government department says it's illegal to employ an intern and not pay them.
Now I've done that my whole career started when I was a local consumer reporter where I asked her.
Research help and they -- what I think we're made of money.
But I win then the colleges and said do you have interns who would like to learn -- work on the job done and they said yeah.
And I won Emmys with their work and the student's.
Life it said things like I'm learning much more here at.
I don't have to pay and I went in the classroom right if -- never get credit.
Four they are almost all.
Let's get -- tech AB CNN fox citizens you have to get credit for it to be.
-- -- -- And if the government trying to say that that shouldn't be the case anymore.
Or the government's absolutely is saying that if there -- unpaid leave you only have an intern if unless you can cover things that government can have them or nonprofit but if you make enough.
If -- a profit making business only if he -- turn impedes your business if you get something from -- in -- Yet can't -- -- bit.
This is not from the -- -- we've already interns who -- -- and we don't like.
That's not appoint you an intern who helps with the work and they learn things so many of who went on the journalism career.
Bright -- that I've been an intern many times I have a 29 year old brother -- still an intern.
Because he keeps us in on every big and that's -- it.
The -- that's taking away real jobs.
Think it's a -- contract between adults and fifteen interns and forced to work there they -- he's been exploited.
He -- -- he's not a slave facilities people corn and it's we in the wind.
About drinking I saw that.
We -- drinking and drugs yeah.
Yeah I ever growing governments.
Force and force but that we'll take away your highway money if you don't raise the drinking age of 21.
So that's just encourages moral law breaking it was eighteen when I was in college.
And the drug laws are absurd -- that we asked the kids what's easier to get.
Alcohol which is legal or -- which is illegal and they all say if -- diseases yet.
So the laws are widely ignored they create a criminal class and while we discuss what the students the laws and some support the most.
Fun -- thank you so much for that pretty I hope you all join in tonight 9 o'clock eastern time.
