J.C. Scott: Az basketball lands 5-star recruit Stanley Johnson
On Friday's edition:
We started our show with Pat Darcy, who talked about his opinion piece in the Arizona Daily Star: "City needs change in direction." Darcy, who attempted to run for mayor in 2011 but didn't qualify for the ballot, addressed what he believes is a lack of leadership in city government and the business community.
20 min: We were then joined by Tucson Hispanic Chamber CEO Lea Marquez Peterson, who talked about bridging the gap for Latino students. She is alarmed that barely half of Arizona Hispanics have obtained a high school education. Latinos still continue to lag behind their white peers in high school graduation rates and overall academic performance. Marquez Peterson also took time to express her disappointment in Congress's inability to agree on comprehensive immigration reform.
