Episode 232: When the numbers become the story

Welcome to episode 232 of the Extra Credit podcast.

Idaho is in a crisis with the coronavirus pandemic Gov. Brad Little said this week as he announced new restrictions for Idaho. The pushback was swift. Some Idahoans said the governor’s modest response doesn’t do enough to slow the spread the virus. Others said the governor has done too much to restrict liberty and harm the economy.

This week, we break down some of the numbers behind our top stories — the pandemic response, new student enrollment numbers, K-3 test results and teacher evaluations.

Be sure to come back next week for another new all new episode of Extra Credit.
