Our co-production between KUOW’s The Conversation and Think Out Loud begins with a look at two stories from our region:
Washington state Senator Don Benton was recently on Think Out Loud, talking about his absolute opposition to the Columbia River Crossing. His surprise appointment to Clark County’s Environmental Services Division is making waves.
In Seattle, there’s been a new development in the controversy over standardized testing. A panel assigned to study the issue has recommended making the MAP test (Measure of Academic Progress) optional rather than mandatory at the high school level.
