New Era for School Testing

New Era for School Testing February 16, 2015

Starting Monday, Common Core counts. Practice is over. The new tests to measure progress for Ohio's school children are about to begin. Most students will take the mandatory tests using computers. And much of the multiple choice format is gone: The tests, which still have many vocal opponents, require more critical thinking. Monday morning on the Sound of Ideas, test prep. We'll talk about the changes and what students, and districts, can expect. Join host Mike McIntyre.

Weekly Regional Roundup

Weekly Regional Roundup February 13, 2015

Crafting the state budget, pushing a balanced federal budget, slashing costs on college campuses; where isn't Governor Kasich's focus these days? For now, he's off visiting other red states. Cleveland's city council this week okayed a new taxing district in the Flats, but did they miss a deadline that could scrub those plans and cost the city money? Answers and more, with Rick Jackson and The Sound of Ideas Friday morning on 90.3.

We'll talk to advocates and judges. Got a question or concern? They'll be ready with answers so, please, join us.

How Well Does Rehab Work?

How Well Does Rehab Work? February 11, 2015

Cleveland Browns celebrity backup quarterback Johnny Manziel, as you likely know already, has announced he's in rehab for an addiction problem. Many people suffering from addiction and not just youngsters like him seek help, but most aren't as high profile as this one. Wednesday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas, we'll discuss addiction, how treatment works -- and sometimes doesn't -- and the unique challenges of getting sober in the public eye. Join host Mike McIntyre.

America’s Changing Demographics

America’s Changing Demographics February 10, 2015

In 2011, for the first time, more minority babies than white babies were born in the United States. By 2050, there will be no such thing as minorities -- the nation will no longer have a white majority. Renowned demographer William Frey of the Brookings Institution, author of the Diversity Explosion, joins the Sound of Ideas to discuss the many ways this demographic shift will remake the nation.
