Balanced Debate For The Old North State.
The coronavirus may declining but the elections contests are getting really ugly. This week’s NC SPIN talks about the debates, the polls and nasty accusations. We also discuss the growing call to have children return to the classroom and what schools are doing about it. Plus we ask our panel to tell us something we don’t know. Be sure to watch balanced debate for the Old North State on this week’s NC SPIN. Our panel this week includes Howard Lee, former state senator and chair of the State Board of Education; Anna Beavon Gravely, Exective Director of NC FREE; John Hood, syndicated columnist and author; and Chris Fitzsimon, Director, States Newsroom. You can watch NC SPIN at 7:30 pm Friday night and 12:30 pm on Sunday on the UNC-TV network. Plus you can watch on the North Carolina Channel Friday night at 10 pm, Saturday at 4:30 pm and Sunday at 10 am. And you can stream the program from our ncspin.com website after 5 pm on Friday. Thank you for watching NC SPIN.
