Saturday from 12-1pm, I'll be guest hosting Robin Hiller's State of Education radio program on KVOI, 1030 AM. You can call in at 520-790-2040.

I have two Tucson-area legislators scheduled to talk with me.

Bruce Wheeler from Legislative District 10 (Central and Eastern Tucson) will be talking about the education bills working their way through the legislature, most specifically the proposed expansion of the voucher program, Empowerment Scholarship Accounts. In Tim Steller's Friday column, Wheeler is quoted saying, “There are ideologues in this state, unfortunately in high positions, who definitely are out to dismantle public education." I've heard that said in private, but this may be the only time I've heard an elected official say it for the record.

Victoria Steele from Legislative District 9 (Mid Tucson through the Foothills and Casa Adobes) will talk about her bills for Mental Health Awareness and her bill to extend the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) Ratification deadline.
