Transforming our Schools A radical reconstruction of Cleveland's schools aims to properly educate kids and elevate the city. But obstacles remain for the plan even though administrators, the teachers' union and politicians from both sides of the aisle like it. Lawmakers will have to pass new state laws, get charter school advocates on board and the schools will have to solve their budget woes. Get schooled on Cleveland's education transformation plan with host Mike McIntyre Wednesday at 9 on the Sound of Ideas.




Eric Gordon, CEO, Cleveland Metropolitan School District
Tracy Radich, Sergeant-at-Arms, Cleveland Teachers Union
Ann Mullin, Senior Program Officer for Education, The George Gund Foundation
