Reporter Eve Pell investigates David Brennan, a wealthy entrepeneur whose privately run charter schools rest at the center of the school-choice debate. Pell uses Brennan's story to investigate the consequences of private management of public schools, including the impact of Brennan's market-driven mindset and conservative values on the quality of the education provided by his schools. The story appeared as a companion to the CIR Frontline co-production, 'The Battle Over School Choice.'
