CPRE Co-Director Jonathan Supovitz interviews Alabama State Senator Joyce Elliot, National Council for State Legislatures' Michelle Exstrom, and Wisconsin State Senator Luther Olsen about NCSL's "No Time to Lose" report, in which education in other nations is considered and implications for the American education system are acknowledged. The report can be read here: http://www.ncsl.org/documents/educ/Edu_International_FinaI_V2.pdf.
