Just got done taping an exciting show for next week's Political Connections.
Judge Howard Manning came in our studios this afternoon to tape an entire show for next Friday (11/2).
In case you don't know, Judge Manning is the judge at the center of the Leandro case that focuses on making sure every child in North Carolina gets a basic sound education.
The first part of the show focuses on educating everyone about the law and the lawsuit and Judge Manning's role. We then moved on to the issues in high schools and how close he was to shutting some of them down. And believe it or not, he praised a Charlotte high school! He was extremely harsh on those schools in the past. He also had some interesting responses when I asked him if he thought people were listening to him.
Manning was also very complimentary about the General Assembly and says they have stepped up to the plate when it comes to funding low wealth counties. For those of you who have followed this issue, that's a big reverse from a few years ago.
Anywho, the show will air next Friday at 6pm (11/2) and replay Sunday at 11am (11/4)
Have a great weekend!
