Welcome to the February 11, 2017 Rio Grande Foundation weekly radio program Tipping Point!
Paul Gessing sits down with Brian Tierney who in 2017 ran for the Albuquerque School Board. Tierney is also on the board of the Albuquerque Tea Party. They discuss problems with the state and local education systems, the challenges of winning ANY political race as a reformer in New Mexico and the special interest forces aligned against them.
Then, Gessing and Tierney talk about Betsy DeVos’ confirmation and her possible efforts to reform education from Washington. Tierney remains optimistic while Gessing is skeptical.
