M-D Superintendent Carvalho – Violence & Education
After a string of youth-involved gun violence and deaths of local children caught in the crosshairs - such as 6 year old King Carter - community leaders and residents have come out in full force to demand change. Most importantly, this change, they say, can only be accomplished by working together in a concerted effort to put the welfare of the area’s children first. Superintendent Alberto Carvalho sits down to discuss his efforts to combat this violence and his disappointment with a 1% increase in state funds allocated for education.

Florida Primary Results & Legislative Session Review
Tuesday's Florida Primary was a pivotal point in the race for The White House and saw hometown candidate Marco Rubio, once hailed as the “savior” of the Republican Party, drop out, after an embarrassing defeat by front-runner Donald Trump. On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton easily won Florida, getting about twice the amount of votes as Bernie Sanders, bringing the former Secretary of State closer to clinching the Democratic nomination. Our guests discuss these results and the notable winners and losers of the 2016 Florida Legislative session, which saw legislators pass an $82.3 billion budget.
