With apologies to Michael J. Fox and Huey Lewis and the News, Bob Wise, president of the Alliance for Excellent Education and former governor of West Virginia, goes back in time to 1948—the last time the Olympics were held in London—in his latest Olympic video report.

Gov. Wise travels back to 1948 London to examine what has changed about the Olympics—and education—in the last sixty-four years. The answer, as you might expect, is quite a lot.
