A Note from Marty

Earlier this week, we talked about the latest episode of Schooled, Last Chance High. We spoke with a former student and current teacher at El Centro de Estudiantes, a high school for students who want to get their diploma after dropping out.

They didn’t make it in a traditional school for many reasons, including problems at home, trauma and learning challenges. 

A high school diploma can be a ticket to a good job and a better life, and the students at El Centro are taking their second chance. You can listen to the conversation here.

Justice Denied

REGIONAL ROUNDUP - Monday

On today's Regional Roundup, we talk about preparations for the 2020 Census, the concerns over the process and why the census is so important.

Finally, we hear about a project taking place at Eastern State Penitentiary, in which inmates are making animated films to express themselves.

US-CHINA RELATIONS - Tuesday

Today we discuss the domestic tumult within China, including the Hong Kong protests, as well as U.S.-China relations in the age of Trump’s “trade war.”

SCHOOL SECURITY - Wednesday

We hear about some of the controversial methods schools are employing to make their schools safer, particularly when it comes to mass shootings. This includes expensive surveillance equipment, as well as some Pennsylvania districts fighting to arm teachers.

MENTAL HEALTH AND MASS SHOOTINGS - Thursday

In this hour, we discuss how many politicians and commentators point to mental illness as the cause for mass shootings, why this claim is misleading and how these kinds of comments impact people with mental illnesses.
