Cleveland leaders have started the planning and fundraising work needed to partner with a national non profit on a program to help Cleveland students get ready for college -- and pay for it. The Say Yes to Education organization helps cities align their resources, create a college going culture and raise money needed to put high education within every student's reach. We'll talk to two of the partners engaged in Cleveland's effort  about the Say Yes program and how it might work.  Then, the  State Superintendent has recommended a reduction in the number of tests Ohio students take. We'll discuss his proposal with educators.

Guests: 

Armond Budish, Cuyahoga County Executive 
Helen Williams, Program Director for Education, The Cleveland Foundation  
Patrick O’Donnell, Education Reporter, The Cleveland Plain Dealer  
Jonathan Kuehnle, Principal, Shaker Heights High School  
Melissa Cropper, President, Ohio Federation of Teachers
