On Today's Show: September 1, 2010

Our conversation continues on the state of education in our country with our Fix Our Schools theme week. Many of you have been very vocal on this blog and we really appreciate your comments. Please keep them coming. When this week ends, don't think this falls off our radar. Our show specifically, has a regular segment called CHALK TALK where we focus on education solutions and the people working to make them happen. Today we're talking about High Tech Education and a program in San Francisco that's not without controversy. You can read about the K to College program. Click Here.
