Interview with Debra Kerner

I've said before that prior to this year, I had never paid any attention to the Harris County Department of Education Trustee races. I think like many people, I'd confused them with either the HISD Trustees or maybe the State Board of Education. That's partly because this year is different and the belief that the county will turn blue is in the air, and partly because there's such a stark difference between the candidates, with the Republicans being a couple of partisan hacks recruited by the infamous Michael Wolfe and the Democrats being a couple of professional educators. One of those educators is Debra Kerner, a speech and language pathologist who is well versed in the various programs that the HCDE provides for the local school districts, since she has been involved with them as part of her job. If you want to know more about what the HCDE does and how someone with a background and experience in education would approach being a part of it, give a listen to my interview with Debra Kerner, as always in MP3 format.
