PG33: Climate Accord, Obama vs Trump on Terror, The End of No Child Left Behind & (Possibly) College Affirmative Action

This week’s top story is the international climate agreement reached after two weeks of negotiations outside of Paris. Mike says that while it won’t prevent the catastrophic effects of climate change, it’s a step in the right direction. Jay feels that nothing will come of it, and that that’s probably a good thing. Next is a look at Obama’s response to the terror attack in San Bernardino (not much) compared to Trump’s response (mindless over-reaction – in other words, typical Trump). After that, Mike and Jay find themselves agreeing with almost everyone else that No Child Left Behind is best left behind, before turning to college affirmative action. Both of the Guys feel that diversity is a worthwhile goal, but they differ on how far colleges should go to achieve it.
