Superintendent of Public Instruction Catherine Truitt joined host Tim Boyum for an exclusive interview this week. 

Truitt is addressing her loss in the primary election for the first time. She talks frankly about her opponent and her concerns about politics infiltrating education and the potential impact on students and our communities. 

Later in the discussion, we cover the topic of expanding opportunity scholarships (vouchers) for private schools.
