Teaching Teachers About Eating Disorders And Us & Them Talks About Race, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, teachers and coaches have tremendous influence over students with the things they say and do. A new law in West Virginia aims to give them more tools when it comes to student health.

Also, in this show, America is engaged in a culture war debate over how we teach our racial history in the public schools. Part of this debate has landed on Critical Race Theory. In a new episode of Us & Them, host Trey Kay looks at efforts to reframe the role slavery played in our nation’s origin.

In other news, a lawsuit filed in Kanawha County claims there has been a violation of Charleston’s Fairness Law, and several West Virginia students got to speak with a family fleeing the war in Ukraine last week.
