NBC has devoted a week to focus on America’s troubled schools.

“Education Nation” takes an in-depth look at reforming our education system. What’s at the heart of the problem in our nation’s public schools? What reforms are working and how can those solutions be part of a national model?

“Meet the Press” featured a conversation with four key voices on this important issue: U.S Secretary of Education Arne Duncan; DC Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee; Emergency Financial Manager for the Detroit Public Schools Robert Bobb; and President of the American Federation of Teachers Randi Weingarten.
