American Adults Behind Their Peers

Share Tweet Email

October 09, 2013

Today on the Regionally Speaking we look at the how Indiana Insurance companies have reacted to the Affordable Care Act.

Gov. Mike Pence issued an op-ed piece on the federal budget shutdown. Host Steve Walsh talked to the State Budget Director to talk about how Indiana is faring.

And here’s a twist on the education gap – How do American adults stack up against their peers from around the world? We talk to the authors of a first of its kind study.

Will Indiana education leaders set aside their differences long enough to replace the state’s often-criticized A through F grading system for schools, before the deadline set by lawmakers?

Guests include:

William Thorn Senior Analyst, Directorate for Education and Skills, Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies

Brian Bailey, State Budget Director

Dan Carden, Statehouse Bureau Chief for the Times of Northwest Indiana

JK Wall reporter with Indiana Business Journal
