What Matters-Jenna Robinson and Tami Fitzgerald, Thursday, February 23, 2017-52 Minutes

To kick off this Thursday Mark speaks with Jenna Robinson, president of the James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal, about a memo that some faculty members in the UNC System sent to the board that evaluates universities for accreditation in North Carolina. The memo cites 17 “areas of concern” such as members of the NC General Assembly having attended meetings of the UNC-Board of Governors and other items equally as nonsensical. Joining us in studio today is Tami Fitzgerald, executive director of the NC Values Coalition, to discuss the various bills that have been filed so far during this legislative session related to repealing HB 2. Specifically, the latest filed Wednesday by Rep. Chuck McGrady (R-Henderson). Fitzgerald breaks down McGrady’s HB 186 and talks about her concerns with the bill.
