09/09/15: School Uniforms; Hunger Action Month; TEDx Jacksonville

Sep 9, 2015

Duval County Public Schools may adopt uniforms for all elementary and middle school students next year. The uniforms would be mandatory for all students in each school, but each school would also be able to pick the color and clothing of the uniforms. We speak with UNF psychology professor and child psychologist Dr. Gabe Ybarra, who recently studied the impacts of uniforms on students' behavior and academic performance.

Feeding Northeast Florida CEO Bruce Ganger joins us to discuss National Hunger Action Month, a coast to coast campaign when Feeding America and local food banks ask everyone to take action to fight hunger in their community.

And we preview the upcoming TEDxJacksonville event with Executive Producer Sabeen Perwaiz and one of this year's speakers, Kevin Hyde, partner and employment lawyer with Foley & Lardner LLP and former Jacksonville City Council President.
