What's next for public education in Maryland? And how will it be funded?
The debate over keeping urban chickens has flown from one area county to another and now, the issue comes home to roost in Washington, D.C. The city’s Department of Health cited a Chevy Chase couple for “importing” their four chickens and threatened to impound the fowl. The couple –two antitrust lawyers– are taking the city to court to try to prove officials are wrongly interpreting local law. Kojo talks to the Chevy Chase chicken owners, and examines similar debates in neighboring jurisdictions.
