The Warrensville Heights school district scored an "F" two years ago and was at risk of state takeover. But it has pulled it state report card grade up to a "C" this year. How? Can other struggling districts learn from them? We'll preview our community tour conversation on improving failing schools on The Sound of Ideas. Then, we'll feature two Ohio-native humorists, Andy Borowitz and the late James Thurber. Join us.
