David Seymour talks about the importance of education to build the kind of society people want for the future and how charter schools work to serve this purpose in New Zealand. He explains how they compete to obtain State funding in return for getting results: academic achievement, student engagement, financial transparency, and students safety. Seymour also comments on the challenges for young and liberal reformers in that country, and what the role of government should be towards women rights, property ownership, social services, regulations, among others. Finally, he shares his experience working with different think tanks in Canada and New Zealand.
