Will Hamas accept Israel’s new ceasefire offer? Ravi weighs in on Israel’s proposal of a 40-day ceasefire in exchange for the release of 33 prisoners and whether it could lead to lasting peace in the region. He then updates listeners on the latest at Columbia University after student protestors took over Hamilton Hall Tuesday morning, why it’s important to protect free speech, and the challenges university leaders will continue to face as they attempt to respond to campus protests around the country. The Supreme Court listened to oral arguments last week over Donald Trump’s claim of immunity from federal criminal charges for trying to overturn the 2020 presidential election. Ravi looks at the potential outcomes of the case and what the implications might be. Finally, Ravi welcomes Mark Keierleber, an investigative reporter at The 74, to the show. Mark and Ravi discuss the educator experience in 2024, from AI to school shootings. They also discuss the surprising ways students have begun to use AI, what it means to hold parents accountable if their children commit a crime, and why the debate over gun control in schools continues to fall along party lines.
