Talking NFL, schools and water on this week’s Think Tank
We take on three topics in this week’s Think Tank:
- NFL players react to the president’s comments attacking players who take a knee in protest during the national anthem. Is this disrespectful or reasonable protest?
- The Arizona Department of Education is issuing several scores measuring school performance. Are these meaningful? Helpful? Do they matter? Are they flawed?
- Water: As long as it’s there when we turn on the tap, we don’t think about it much. We know we live in a dessert and there are long-term issues. Several important developments on that score happened this week.
