Approximately 44 million people in this country have no health insurance, and another 38 million have inadequate health insurance. A Harvard University study found that 50 percent of all bankruptcy filings were partly the result of medical expenses. Why have healthcare costs become such a problem in the United States and what can be done to fix the problem? Does the solution lie with government taking a more active role or is there a way to promote market based solutions?

Over the past 30 years, average per-student expenditures for public, elementary, and secondary schools have nearly doubled while proficiency in reading and math skills has declined.

Should we consider free-market alternatives such as “voucher” programs that allow private schools to compete for the same tax dollars that public schools receive? Or would privatization just lead to new challenges that would exacerbate the problem? Join Mark Pudlow from the Florida Education Association as he squares off against Michael Van Winkle from the Heartland Institute over the best ways to improve education in America on the Saturday, May 12th edition of The SoapBox Radio Show!
