Public school education

As a 15-year-old high school senior denouncing the significantly lower pay for women teachers at school board meetings and his early support of union organizing efforts for teachers in the 1960s, Yannacone has been a champion of American public school education and an advocate for the rights of classroom teachers in the public schools against overbearing bureaucracy and stifling administrative “management”.
In 1964, Yannacone helped establish the nation’s first preschool early learning program through the Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) in Brookhaven Town, New York. Unfortunately, it lasted only one year before the educational bureaucracy terminated the program at the insistence of the local school superintendent who was concerned about the success of the project and the problem of what to do with the children when they reached public school kindergarten because, “They would know too much!”
More recently, Yannacone has  attacked the flawed foundations of the expensive national experiments mandated by federal education czars: No Child Left behindRace to the Top, and Common Core.

Legal education

Yannacone deplores the failure of American law schools to meet the needs of business in America and the American people urging a new paradigm for legal education in America based on three degree programs: a common core JD (juris doctor); an MBL (Master of Business Law); and an MDR (Master of Dispute Resolution).
