NJ Governor Chris Christie’s Possible Presidential Bid, JCPS Test Results, and Scams Targeting Job Seekers: Today on Here and Now

by Laura Ellis on September 28, 2011

There’s a cloud of speculation hovering around New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. He said he’s not running for President, but does that mean he won’t? One Republican close to Christie told the New York Times that the governor hasn’t changed his mind about not running, “but the window to change his mind is not closed today.” Wall Street Journal politics reporter Jonathan Weisman will talk about what is likely to happen and what it could mean for the GOP field.

The Better Business Bureau has received 15,000 complaints this year about possible job scams. It looks like a real job, but when the candidate submits financial or personal information, her accounts get hacked and her identity stolen. We’ll talk about how to protect yourself.

Standardized test scores are out, and there are positive and negative results for Jefferson County Public Schools. WFPL’s Devin Katayama has been covering JCPS and will join us to explain what the scores mean.

Shows like The Sing-Off, The Voice, and most especially Glee have brought new recruits to high school and college choirs and a cappella groups around the country. We’ll look at the impact they’ve had on choral music.
