    KANSAS SENATE SUNDAY

    in Politics

    Caution: there is a 5 min. dead space at the very beginning where my mic was muted. I apologise for the inconvenience.


    The statehouse senate in Topeka goes into record breaking session, and we'll be playing audio clips and commenting on some of the most memorable moments.  The debate held today will be around how to raise tax revenues to fill the $400 million deficit immediately facing the #Brownback led #FailedExperiment.


    We finish with professor Christopher Parker on Talking Stick tv defining Tea Party "conservatives" as "reactionairies" and how he came up with delineating the Republicans among the false "revolutionaires."  


    This should be of particular interest to those in the Kansas "Red Pen Briagade" who are trying to destroy popular social services available to the working poor in Kansas.

    Assault on Public Education

    in Politics

    Last week the majority in the state legislature, under the leadership of Gov. Sam Brownback passed a new controversial law providing "block grant" funding to our public schools. The agenda has many critics, and may force a constitutional crisis in the supreme court. Later this week from March 28 - 30 people will be walking from Johnson County (NE Kansas) to the Topeka statehouse to raise awareness and promote participation of the public.


    Information about this event is at Game on for Kansas Schools. Stay tuned to RFK for updates.


    Today we will broadcast a special program on the corporate attempt to take over and privatize our public schools with Charter Schools. The show will expose how the "reform" movement under Obama's "Race to the Top" is being used as a guise to bring about this privatization of our public schools. You'll learn how they're doing it, who's behind it and what you can do about it.


    The Assault on Public Education is produced in the studio of WWUH 91.3 FM at the University of Hartford and airs on the last Monday of every month from 12- 1:00 PM.. at WWUH 91.3 FM (www.wwuh.org)
