On Television: School Choice, NDUS Hypocrisy And Guns In Schools

Here’s the video from my weekly segment with Chris Berg on Valley News Live from last night. It’s split into two segments as Rep.

On Television: Kirsten Diederich Resignation Is A Start To Fixing Higher Ed

After taking some time off I made a glorious return to Chris Berg’s 6:30 Point of View program last night. I apologize in advance for the cruddy audio. I didn’t have Skype set to pick up the right microphone, so instead of broadcasting my lapel mic Skype was picking up the audio from my radio

On Chris Berg’s 6:30 Point of View program last night – my first since coming back from vacation! – we discussed higher education. Specifically, the Higher Learning Commission report about the North Dakota University System which I wrote about yesterday. University system officials were all over the media yesterday claiming this report exonerates their governance

On Television: North Dakota University System Has A Trust Problem

I was on Chris Berg’s Valley News Live show last night for my regular weekly segment, and perhaps not surprisingly we discussed my big story about the State Board of Higher Education making some candid remarks they thought were off the record in a non-public meeting. Before the show, Chris asked me what I thought
