Bill Maher, Michael Powell talk education with Chris Matthews

On Tuesday, NBC’s “Education Nation On-The-Road” tour makes a stop in Los Angeles where “Hardball” host with Chris Matthews devotes his MSNBC show to the challenges, potential solutions and innovations on the education horizon. And he’ll be doing it “Hardball” style with Bill Maher, and former FCC chairman Michael Powell.

MSNBC has a sponsor lined up for this stop: the Grad Nation campaign of America’s Promise Alliance. Powell’s father, Gen. Colin Powell (Ret.) is the founder of America’s Promise Alliance.

This is all a part of NBC’s “Education Nation Los Angeles,” running all week and involving NBC’s LA TV outlets NBC4 and Telemundo 52.

On June 8, Matthews returns to his hometown of Philadelphia for another “Education Nation On-The-Road” stop. NBC’s “Education Nation Philadelphia” will run from June 5-11.
