Guest: Kari Hong, JD, Professor of Law, Boston College A federal judge in San Francisco dealt another blow to the Trump administration’s immigration policies on Tuesday. You’ll recall the Trump’s ban on travel from certain Muslim-majority countries was blocked by the court. Now his plan to withhold federal funding from cities and towns that refuse to cooperate with immigration authorities has been temporarily halted. President Trump’s response on Twitter was similar: he criticized the court for overreaching and pledged to take the case to the Supreme Court.

Guest: Martin Carnoy, PhD, Professor of Education, Stanford University, author of “Vouchers and Public School Performance” The school year is winding down, but principals are already busy assembling class lists for the fall. Students, and more particularly, parents, who are unhappy with their child’s school may be looking at other options. A range of choices has become the norm in many districts: charter schools, magnet schools and publicly-funded tuition vouchers might be available to help cover the cost of attending private school.  US Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has pledged to make school choice – and vouchers, in particular - the norm nationwide, calling it the key to improving American education. But, a recent study published by the Economic Policy Institute finds vouchers are not a panacea for student performance.
