Week-In-Review: AG Opinions, Distressed Schools, Medicaid, UALR Enrollment & Retiring Chancellor

Sep 7, 2015

Just in time to cap off your long weekend, we present another edition of the Week-In-Review podcast.

We talk about Attorney General Leslie Rutledge's advisory opinion on an upcoming civil rights referendum in Fayetteville, as well as her request of the Governor to schedule executions.

In education, we discuss the revelation this week that former Little Rock Superintendent Dexter Suggs had a degree revoked by his alma mater over plagiary allegations. Several schools across Arkansas made the state's distressed schools list. And one institution of higher learning may have finally kicked the habit of losing students, just as its longtime Chancellor says he'll soon retire.

Arkansans that lost Medicaid coverage through the state's redetermination notice share their stories as advocates call for reinstatement for over 50,000 people.
