The Sound of Ideas Community Tour: Lorain - Education

Featured Audio

Lorain's schools have performed so poorly they're now under state control. Newly appointed CEO David Hardy, Jr. will release a turnaround plan soon with a focus on the kids.  We got out of the studio for a community conversation in Lorain on September 28 and we present that forum for you here. You'll hear more from Mr. Hardy, from residents passionate about improving education, and a student perspective as well.
