WFAE Talks No Nonsense Nurturing (Again), Project LIFT, Tax Deductible Political Donations


Lisa Worf first reported in November on a new teaching method called No Nonsense Nurturing that's being utilized at Project LIFT schools in CMS. This week, No Nonsense Nurturing became the subject of intense national attention after NPR aired a version of Lisa's story on Weekend Edition Sunday. Lisa, Greg, and Tom discuss the teaching method and some of the shoddy reporting by other media outlets that followed up on her story.

Speaking of Project LIFT, it's board this week had its only public meeting of the year. Lisa covered the meeting and will tell us about it. Plus, Tom discusses his story on tax-deductible donations to non-profit political groups.
