Parents Pony Up for Public Schools California law requires that all kids have access to the same level of school spending . Of course they don't, but now the difference is being exaggerated by Governor Schwarzenegger's proposed cuts in funding for education. We hear from a district that's collecting extra money to keep teachers from being fired and another where parents can't afford to chip in more than they already pay in taxes.
Trump's travel ban and the long-term agenda The Trump Administration's revised travel ban may be good news for some visa holders and others, but it's still being challenged as unconstitutional. Some reporters call it the beginning of a long-term effort to change the demographic make-up of the United States.
Nationalism's appeal on both sides of the Atlantic Nationalism, Populism, concerns about immigration and outright racism are part of election campaigns from the US to Europe. We hear how today's election in Holland reflects the recent past and may forecast the future.
The 'deconstruction' of the administrative state President Trump has failed to fill high-level positions in important agencies — and some people he has named want to phase out the agencies they're supposed to lead. We look at the possible consequences for delivering services and providing security — and at top aide Steve Bannon's plans for "deconstructing the administrative state."
