I have been invited to be interviewed tonight on Backbone Radio with Senator John Andrews. If you’re in the Denver metro area, tune in to 710 KNUS AM at 7:30 p.m. to hear us talk about the costliness of teacher strikes. I know you won’t be going out to practice your golf game this evening, so it’s either me or the TV movie of the week. I’ll let you decide.
If you’re not in the Denver metro area, you can listen online by going to the 710 KNUS website and clicking on the “Listen Live” icon in the upper-right corner.
The radio invitation comes on the heels of my Monday Speakout column – “Don’t pay teachers for days on strike” – in the Rocky Mountain News. That opinion piece stemmed from my research which led to the Independence Institute Issue Backgrounder “No Work, No Pay”: The Lesson of the 1994 Denver Teachers’ Strike.
