Co-hosting “State of Education” with Chris Ackerley today (Saturday)


by David Safier

Should make for an interesting hour. I'll be co-hosting the radio show, "State of Education" (noon-1pm, KVOI, 1030AM) with Chris Ackerley while regular host Robin Hiller is away. Chris is an Amphi High School physics and math teacher. He's also a Republican who ran for the state house in 2012 from LD-2. My only contact with Chris was once when I heard him talk about school funding. He came across as a smart, thoughtful, honest guy.

Chris and I have decided on topics for discussion, but we haven't talked with each other about our views, so the conversation will be spontaneous and unrehearsed. I honestly don't know what to expect. Should be interesting.

It's a call-in show: 520-790-2040. Feel free to phone us with questions and comments.
