Friday on Lake Effect: School Choice, Chris Hadfield, The Wizard of Oz

Friday on Lake Effect:

Why school improvement is tough, even in an era of school choice. Then we’ll meet Chris Hadfield, former commander of the International Space Station, who has a new book of photographs taken from the Space Station. Why The Wizard of Oz and its meditation on the meaning of “home” still resonates. And why you should look at kids having public meltdowns a little differently.


  • John Witte, UW Emeritus Professor of public policy
  • Colonel (ret.) Chris Hadfield, astronaut, author, and photographer
  • Linda Brovsky, Wizard of Oz stage director; Viswa Subbaraman, Skylight Music Theatre artistic director
  • Lane Pierce, Lake Effect essayist
