Is it good to accept what every state senator says without questioning it? And moreover, can we believe everything they say? I am starting to doubt it after this spectacular interview of a high school student with AZ state senator John Huppenthal.
The student was asking a few basic questions about the subject of the massive budget cuts in education, especially the ones to Technical and Career Education funding. Huppenthal, on his website called as -one of the leading authorities on education issues, talks during the interview about how important he thinks Career and Technical education programs are and how the cuts in the budget are -simply horrendous. When the student asked him why he voted yes on the bill about the budget cuts in May 2009, Huppenthal asks for more information and starts to laugh nervously. Afterwards he stands up and says he will be right back but the young interviewer is still waiting for his return.
