Erica Estep is filling in this week for Gene Patterson.
In President Obama's recent State of the Union, he made education one of the focal points of his speech. He said we should treat our teachers like nation builders.
So today, Erica is talking about the state of education in East Tennessee with Gavin Luter, the United Way education project coordinator, and Knox County School Board member Pam Trainor.
Then Erica is joined by 6 News political analyst George Korda, Cortney Piper of Piper Communications, and Metropulse managing editor Jesse Mayshark to talk politics. One of the topics they discuss is another candidate who dropped out this week from the race for Knoxville mayor.
