Local NPR affiliate WBHM aired an interesting interview this morning with Craig Pouncey, chief of staff for the Alabama Department of Education.
The topic was a Center on Budget and Policy Priorities report on the steep drop in per-pupil funding in Alabama schools since 2008. (The Star editorialized on the topic here.)
"I know parents are considered about their children's educational opportunities, um, just hopeful at some point in time our elected officials will be just as concerned as parents."
Guess we'll soon find out which Alabama elected officials listen to NPR.
