July 9, 2014: Tim Wu, Walter Hang, Common Core in the classroom, Larry Levy

Tim Wu is running against Kathy Hochul for the Democratic nomination for Lt. Governor. We talk about his candidacy and how it’s linked to his work on net neutrality.

It’s time to scrap the SGEIS on hydrofracking and start over — at least that’s what Walter Hang, President of Toxics Targeting and other anti-fracking activists are arguing. Hang joins us in the studio to discuss this new strategy.

The Network Team Institute or NTI was held in Albany on Monday and Tuesday, attracting hundreds of teachers and principals who are eager to know more about the Common Core and how to harness the new standards in the classroom. Our guests are Terry O’Brien, Principal at Watervliet Elementary; Jody Popple of the Madison Oneida Boces and a 1st Grade Teacher; and Michael Faustino of Oneida-Herkimer-Madison BOCES, and a Kindergarten Teacher.

Larry Levy, Executive Dean of Hofstra’s National Center for Suburban Studies joins us to discuss whether the Governor may play a role in the pending Long Island Railroad strike and how it may throw some unexpected potential excitement into the governor’s race.
