America, Heck Yeah! Public Schools & Baseball

In this episode of the PS You’re Interesting podcast, Jeff Jenkins and D. Roderick (Rod) Kiewiet, Professor of Political Science at Caltech, break down the long standing myth of the equalizing force of public education. We hold the idea that public schools present Americans with equal opportunity. Kiewiet gets to the reality through public school funding in California compared to the nation.

In a related pivot, they turn to the great American pastime and look at Moneyball, data, and baseball.
