Balanced Debate For The Old North State.

This week's NC SPIN has great debate. We begin by discussing a consultant's report that concludes our state needs to spend considerably more money on k-12 public education. We move to the all-too-frequent tug of war between our legislative branch and excutive branch, often involving the judicial branch to sort things out. NC SPIN then asks why more teachers are failing their licensure exams. This week's panel includes former Governor Bev Perdue, former Senator and chair of the State Board of Education Howard Lee, NC Free's Executive Director Anna Beavon Gravely and John Hood, syndicated columnist and author. Be sure to watch NC SPIN Friday night at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 12:30 p.m. or you can stream the show from our website Thanks for watching NC SPIN.
