Big Huna Here. This Week on KHDX we discussed a relevant topic to each and every Hendrix student: Education. Betsy Devos was recently affirmed as the nation’s secretary of education. I don’t care where you sit politically, this is a big deal. Her ideas on how the education system are very different from how things are now. She is a big advocate of charter schools and private schools. Find out Shaq Daddy Dyer and I’s opinion on the subject within the podcast. In this podcast we ask: Is the U.S. behind when it comes to education? Why? Will Betsy’s DeVos new ideas worsen or better the education system? What do other countries do differently that result in higher test scores? Find out more in this week’s Alphabet Snack Region.

I am from Boulder, Colorado, but have lived all over the U.S. and abroad. This is my sophomore year at Hendrix. I play on the tennis team and live in Hardin. I work at a summer camp in northwest Pennsylvania every summer, ski every winter, and in general enjoy the great outdoors.
