An education report released yesterday identifies ways to improve some chronic challenges in New Brunswick schools: classroom composition, student absenteeism and teaching french to anglophone students. Jeanne Armstrong spoke to two members of the committee that came up with the recommendations to find out what happens next. Tiffany Bastin is Assistant Deputy Minister in the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, and Ardith Shirley is the Executive Director of the New Brunswick Teachers Association.
Spotify wrapped is a snapshot of what users listened to for the whole year. Jeanne Armstrong spoke to Fredericton musician Waylon Napadogan about what things look like if you're an artist.

Frederictonians are on the hunt for the perfect Christmas tree, and maybe a little earlier this year than most. Prapti Bamaniya visited Red-Robin Christmas Trees in Keswick Ridge.

Jeanne Armstrong spoke to Heather Atcheson with the Saint John Human Development Council about what a living wage means in New Brunswick, and what it would take to get families to that point.
