Dirk Haire, the Chair of Maryland's GOP, joins us to talk about the upcoming election. And we meet Jamie Sycamore, who is running as an Independent for the D.C. Council.
In a surprise move, Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent Joshua Starr said he’s stepping down Feb. 16, after it became clear the school board wouldn’t renew his contract, which expires in June.

We explore the implications for schools around the region.
