The Weeds: replacing No Child Left Behind, wonky March Madness, and Uber's productivity

the weeds

Special guest star Libby Nelson joined Matt Yglesias and me this week so we could take on a topic that lots of Weeds listeners have been asking us to discuss: education policy. We spend a whole lot of time talking about No Child Left Behind and its newly passed successor, the Every Student Succeeds Act.

Also in this episode: an examination of the strange history and economics behind the NCAA's nonpayment of athletes, and a breakdown of some new research on why Uber works. As always, you can subscribe to us on iTunes and email us at weeds@vox.com!
