Roundtable: Education Cuts, Whistle-Blower’s Troubles, Airport Concessions

Aired 12/16/11 on KPBS Midday Edition.

Guests: Kyla Calvert, KPBS News Education Reporter

Ricky Young, Watchdog editor, San Diego Union Tribune

Lori Weisberg, reporter, San Diego Union Tribune

Transcript

The state's mid-year budget cuts weren't as severe as feared, but they will still hurt San Diego Unified to the tune of $7 to $8 million. And former D.C. Chancellor of Schools Michelle Rhee was in town promoting her vision for education change.

A County pension officer was fired after going to the media over his concerns about risk. We look at what protection whistle-blowers have.

And after the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority awarded all-new contracts for concessions at the airport, they threw away the evaluation forms. Losers have no idea how they scored.

Rhee has many detractors here in San Diego. I'm disappointed that none of them are discussing this event.
