There's a battle going on in public education right now. Education reform is every politician's favorite new cause.

Edgy, funny and poignant, Kids, Classrooms, and Capitol Hill explores the issues, big and small, facing the key players in what sometimes feels like an impossible quest- educating our nation's youth.
