Fraud In Seattle Schools? Seattle Public Schools are being investigated for financial fraud of up to $1.8 million. KUOW's Phyllis Fletcher brings us the latest.

GET Reform Bill: Senator Lisa Brown is proposing a bipartisan bill to reform the state's GET program that helps Washingtonians pay for college. We talk to the senator.

Home Sales Rise — Or Did They? The number of homes sold nationally rose for the third month in a row this January according to the National Association of Realtors. Or did they? The realtor association may have inflated its home sales numbers by 15 to 20 percent in 2009 according to some economists. We talk to economist Dean Baker.


Phyllis Fletcher covers education and more for KUOW.

Lisa Brown represents Spokane and is the Washington State Senate majority leader.

Dean Baker co–directs the Center for Economic and Policy Research in Washington, DC, and is the author of several books, including "False Profits: Recovering from the Bubble Economy."
