Governor Ted Strickland says it's time to remake Ohio's public schools. He wants to increase the length of the school year, send kindergarteners to class all day, create a teaching career path for professionals not trained as educators and make it easier for administrators to terminate underperforming teachers. The Governor unveiled these and many other education reform goals in his recent State of the State message in which he also launched a plan to fix the funding problems that have long plagued education. How does his plan measure up? We'll talk to the Governor's education adviser and other experts Wednesday at 9:00 on the Sound of Ideas.

John Stanford, PhD, Governor Strickland's education adviser

Todd Hoadley, superintendent, Olmsted Falls public schools
