Connections: Discussing issues faced by local children and families

Oct 19, 2018

What are the most important issues facing children and families in our community? A local nonprofit -- The Children's Agenda -- has a list of legislative priorities for candidates this election season. They join us to discuss K-12 funding, special education, child care, and more. It's a preview to an upcoming forum hosted by the League of Women Voters.

In studio:

  • Brigit Hurley, director of advocacy for The Children's Agenda
  • Eamonn Scanlon, education policy analyst for The Children's Agenda
  • Mary Hussong-Kallen, communications director for the League of Women Voters of the Rochester Metropolitan Area
