This program remains controversial. Hear opinions from Marcus Winters, Senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute; Jonah Rockoff, Faculty Research Fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research; Jim Lieberman, Chief Accountability Officer of the Department of Education; and Howard Husock, Vice President of Policy Research and the Director of the Manhattan Institute’s Social Entrepreneurship Initiative. This event was held by the Manhattan Institute.
