SAGA Pod / Learning Curve 01.29.15

Dallas Home Rule Commissioner Kevin Malonson stops by to discuss the pros and cons of Home Rule: Why he voted against writing a charter, why he isn't against reform, and what critics on both sides of the debate can learn from parents and educators. He also declines my offer to take a swing at me. As always, please listen with your ears.

SAGA Pod / Learning Curve 01.27.15

I stop by the palacial offices of State Rep. Rafael Anchia to discuss the Trinity Toll Road, the Home Rule Commission, and his broad legislative agenda (LGBT issues, smart meter fonts, etc.). We also talk about how much Arsenal sucks and the concept of horizontal Jesus. As always, please listen with your ears.

DISD School Board President Miguel Solis stops by to chat about all things education. We talk about the current testing controversy, the controversial teacher evalution system, the controversial battles between Mike Miles and certain school board members -- it's a controversy-heavy discussion is what I'm saying here, people. Also, it's very clear I need to do more of SAGA podcasts in 2015, because, man, are my hosting skills rusty. I think I break a personal record for most "uhhhhhh"s in the first three minutes alone. But don't let my terribleness distract you from Solis, who will actually make you feel hopeful that the board can make substantive progress this semester.
