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.
An association of Washington, D.C. public charter schools claims the city has provided millions of dollars less in funding for charter schools than traditional public schools. While opponents question the practicality of a uniform funding model that gives every school the exact same amount of funding, the lawsuit itself dredges up the issue of whether the D.C. Council has the authority to assign funding in the first place. We examine both sides of the funding issue, and how it relates to the ongoing debate over home rule.
