A Virginia State Senator joins us to talk about the ongoing struggle to pass a budget in the Commonwealth. A former Obama appointee tells us why he's running for Prince George's County executive. From Metro to Medicaid, we talk about the week's biggest regional news on the Politics Hour.
Earlier this year, four Prince George’s County school board members alleged the impressive rise in graduation rates was the result of fraud, grade tampering, and intimidation of teachers and staff. An audit on the matter was just released, and while the investigation cited sloppy recordkeeping and a host of other problems, they found no evidence of a coordinated campaign to fraudulently boost graduation rates. WAMU’s education reporter Kate McGee joins us for an update.
