Airs on WSTC-AM (Stamford) and WNLK-AM (Norwalk) on Sunday mornings
This week the focus is on economic disparity in Fairfield County. The difference between the very rich and very poor in the county is more extreme than possibly anywhere else in the nation. WSHU’s Craig LeMoult spoke with Orlando Rodriguez of Connecticut Voices for Children about income inequality in the region. We also hear from Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy and Education Commissioner Stefan Pryor about new education reform proposalsintended to address the student achievement gap. And Rae Ann Knopf, Executive Director of the Connecticut Council for Education Reform weighs in on the Governor’s proposals. We also take a look at the impact of economic disparity on housing, with David Fink of the Partnership for Strong Communities. And we discuss how the issue impacts people’s health, in a conversation with Elizabeth Krause of the Connecticut Health Foundation.
