Educators across the country will come to Hathaway Brown school in Shaker Heights today for a summit on education innovation. Join the conversation with host Mike McIntyre to explore how technology is spurring that innovation, Thursday at 9 on 90.3.

I have a son with ADHD and wondering if online schooling is a good option for a kid with attention problems?
Tech is a tool. Teachers are miss-using this tool at times. My daughter is an “A” student in math but I feel there are far too many times that I had to explain something because the teacher basically told her to just told her once and if she had problem, she could look on the line.
