12th Grade Overhaul Senior year of high school may feel like a victory lap for many students who can put their academic career into cruise control for a farewell tour of adolescence. With the Ohio Graduation Test behind them, credit hours accumulated and college acceptance already in hand, life can become one big study hall. State education leaders are aiming to change that: with college courses, vocational training or apprenticeships. Making senior year count, with host Mike McIntyre Wednesday at 9 on the Sound of Ideas.
