Friday conversation with Hubert Neth

May 31, 2019

The podcast has taken the week off (don't worry, we're back next week!) But I thought it might be nice to look back at one of my favorite interviews. I've known Hubert Neth since my days at the Journal, but in September of 2017 I got a chance to sit down with him and have a fantastic conversation on faith and his 40 years as a minister in our community.

Much like the topic they were discussing (or maybe you think the word should be avoiding), last week's Lee's Summit R-7 School District Board of Education meeting was at times both difficult and awkward. Let's face it, there was a lot to unpack there. Nick and Jason attempt to break it down and ponder whether some board members' opposition actually display a reason for more conversation on bias and equity.

Nick and Jason sit down with Corey McDonald and Ron Freeman, of the Community Solutions Focus Group. The group, believing public conversations surrounding the LS R-7 School District's equity plan have had too much emphasis on race, is looking to change the narrative. This is the first in a series of conversations with and about various community groups looking to influence district decision making.
