Faculty Publications and Accomplishments: Dr. Bill Baker & Dr. Vincent Alfonso

In a Nation article entitled, “Romney, If You’re Serious About Deficit Reduction, Leave Big Bird AloneDr. Bill Baker (Claudio Aquaviva Chair of Education and Journalist in Residence) argues against Romney’s plan, if elected president, to eliminate funding to PBS in an effort to reduce the federal budget deficit. Baker explains:  “By eliminating funding to PBS, Romney and the Republicans could indeed win some support from radical conservatives, but tens of millions of Americans will lose out, especially poor children struggling to get access to a good education. PBS isn’t just NewsHour and Antiques RoadShow. Ninety-five percent of PBS stations across America provide educational programming to their communities.”
