Segment 1: New Kansas City Public Schools sub-district map creates controversy.
The state mandated Kansas City Public Schools reduce their Board of Education from nine to seven members by April 2019. The Kansas City Board of Election Commissioners, charged with driving the process, released the final boundary map last month which was not the map endorsed by the school district. Today, we talked about the new boundary lines and how they may not be representative of the diverse area the district serves.

Segment 2, starting at 17:50: Ethical arguments around asking White House press secretary to leave restaurant.
The owner of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Va. refused to serve President Trump's spokeswoman and her family last month and politely asked them to leave the restaurant in protest of the Sarah Sander's work defending Trump's policies. The White House press secretary responded to the incident, saying she and her family quietly left the restaurant, but the owner went too far. We asked the Ethics Professors if the owner's action was morally defensible.
