Political corruption in BOTH parties? Say it isn’t so!

Feb 17, 2015 @ 11:00 pm - 11:55 pm

Jay Cost, Author

Continued from the 2nd hour… more on the “Little Free Library” shutdown in Shreveport, LA.

THEN…

Author Jay Cost talks about corruption in BOTH parties and his new book “A Republic No More: Big Government and the Rise of American Political Corruption.” He says the biggest difference between the 2 parties is in the grassroots. The upper echelons are not much different and riddled with corruption.

The largest school district in North Carolina is trying to train its educators to be more effective and “equitable” in the classroom by helping them “rank their societal privilege.” We can’t label kids as boys and girls, but we can label them as privileged or not. No wonder we’re ranked so low in language and math skills worldwide! How about we focus on skills like reading, writing, and math?
