  2. Philip Weiss, founder and co-editor of Mondoweiss.net, an independent website devoted to informing readers about developments in Israel/Palestine and related U.S. foreign policy discusses the September 17 Israeli election, Prime Minister Netanyahu’s pledge to illegally annex the Jordan Valley, 30% of the land in the Palestinian West Bank if he wins a 5th term in office, and the U.S. response.
  3. Marge Baker, Executive Vice President of the group People For the American Way, examines President Trump’s nomination of Steven Menashi, a top aid to Education Secretary Besty DeVos and Trump White House attorney, to serve a lifetime appointment on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and the controversy over his views on “ethno-nationalism.”
  4. Green Party presidential candidate Howie Hawkins talks about his campaign – and his call for the declaration of a national climate emergency, criticism of Democratic candidates’ climate plans as “insufficient,” all relevant to the youth-led international September 20 Global Climate Strike.

10 PM: Writer’s Voice: Francesca Rheannon

We talk with Paul Tough about his terrific new book, THE YEARS THAT MATTER MOST: How College Makes Or Breaks Us. It asks the question: Is the American system of higher education fair? Or is it designed to protect the privileged and leave everyone else behind? Then we re-air my 2015 interview with Kristina Rizga about her book MISSION HIGH: One School, How Experts Tried to Fail It, and the Students and Teachers Who Made It Triumph. It’s about a high school in San Francisco with an impressive track record on educating poor, minority and immigrant youth.
