Morning Joe’s Education Forum2 Comments
Last week, Joe Scarborough and team presented an education forum called, "Great Expectations" on his MSNBC talk show, Morning Joe. The show was filmed on site at Alexander Elementary School, in Tampa, Florida, a diverse school notable for high test scores.
Guests included former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, R&B singer John Legend, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Newark Mayor Cory Booker and the Rev. Al Sharpton. While questions from the audience (which included local teachers and administrators) were taken for a short period at the end of the show, this panel did not include a single educator.
