On Wednesday’s Houston Matters: The former superintendent of Crosby ISD made a surprise appearance at the district’s board meeting Tuesday night to explain how the district got into the financial situation it now faces. That came just moments before an independent audit of the school district’s finances was released finding evidence of "fraudulent financial reporting." The Houston Chronicle’s Shelby Webb joins us with the latest.

Also this hour: We discuss the political implications of President Trump's declaration of a national emergency over border security — along with other happenings in the news — in our weekly political roundup.

Then, Erin Mills, entomologist and director of the Cockrell Butterfly Center at the Houston Museum of Natural Science joins us to answer questions about bugs and insects in Greater Houston.

And a conference at the University of Houston aims to better train journalists to cover protests and social activism.
