A major local financial institution files for bankruptcy; the former head of another local financial institution is tapped to man the helm of the Port Authority. Meanwhile, competition develops in Nashville for Cuyahoga County's planned medical mart, Republicans in the Ohio Senate offer a compromise to close the state budget gap, and the Cleveland State University board grants the new President unprecedented hiring powers. Thursday morning at 9, join host Dan Moulthrop and reporters from across the state for analysis of those stories and others from the week's news.

I live in a suburb where we have the option to pay for all day kindergarten, to which we’ve sent two of our children.  The school district makes a big deal of saying that there’s no difference in the curriculum between half-day & full-day kindergarten (we can’t say that they ‘learn’ more in full day because that wouldn’t be fair!) The kids in full-day obviously have an edge over the half day kids.  I was at a kindergarten assembly two weeks ago and it was obvious which kids were in full-day and which kids were in half-day; the full-day kids were much more attentive, on task, and participative.  This should be the priority right now in Ohio education!
