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.
