Envy is a real emotion that we all feel and it's natural to see people who have different characteristics than you and be a bit jealous. How do we get away from envious and instead being each other's biggest cheerleaders? Robin and Jill have some ideas and it all comes back to perspective.

If you're headed almost anywhere east of the Rockies for Christmas, getting there could be rough. A huge Winter storm is moving across much of the country, creating blizzard conditions in the plains and upper Midwest with frigid temperatures and wind chills too cold for many of us here to even comprehend. We go In Depth into what you need to know if you're about to fly and maybe even drive into these conditions.  Many students in the LA School District are seeing higher grades right now but their test scores don't seem to follow. We look into this disconnect.  Ukraine President Zelensky gave an emotional address to Congress as he encouraged the U.S. to stand behind Ukraine and help the country defeat Russia in its war. We go In Depth into how committed the U.S. will remain.  Christmas is approaching in Ukraine where people will celebrate despite the war.

Show me some valid, reliable, comparable data, collected over time, that shows our schools are failing and that teachers are doing a horrible job. Give me some solid data that indicates that our schools are worse than they were 5, 10, 20, or 30 years ago. That data should not be based on your selected memory of what you think schools were like once upon a time, but some solid data with appropriate sample sizes, that represent the population to which you are seeking to generalize.

A recent study by the National Assessment of Educational Progress shows that test scores across the country have dropped after the Covid-19 pandemic. NBC News has the story:   The Covid-19 pandemic spared no state or region as it caused historic learning setbacks for America's children, erasing decades of academic progress and widening racial disparities, according to results of a national test that provide the sharpest look yet at the scale of the crisis.  Across the country, math scores saw their largest decreases ever. Reading scores dropped to 1992 levels. Nearly four in 10 eighth graders failed to grasp basic math concepts. Not a single state saw a notable improvement in their average test scores, with some simply treading water at best.  Those are the findings from the National Assessment of Educational Progress — known as the “nation's report card” — which tested hundreds of thousands of fourth and eighth graders across the country this year. It was the first time the test had been given since 2019, and it's seen as the first nationally representative study of the pandemic's impact on learning.  Also, Chris McClain from WFNZ joins the program to talk about the Panther's surprising win over Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
