The Daily Show Highlights: Teachers Vs. Wall Street pay, and a conversation with Diane Ravitch

While most agree that the issues facing education and our country's teachers are hardly laughing matters, sometimes comedy shines a more pure light on how wildly the wheels are coming off of the bus.

Thursday, March 3, the Daily Show's Jon Stewart concluded his week's theme on educators and education. The show began with Stewart, delivering in his signature sharp style, a satirical examination of a major cable news channel's coverage of the teacher pay versus Wall Street pay "debate" and ended with a thoughtful conversation with Diane Ravitch, author of "The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice are Undermining Education."
