There are four school districts in the county and on Sept. 1 we talked with administrators about what’s new or the same at their schools. How are they similar or different from each other? How do issues like “No Child Left Behind” or the state’s aid money shifts affect our local schools?

“Back to School in Cook County” -- this month’s First Thursday Community Conversation.

Joining host Jay Andersen in the studio were:
•    Peter James, Director of Great Expectations Charter School in Grand Marais,
•    Fred Kasianov, Director of Education at Oshki Ogimaag Community School, Grand Portage,
•    Beth Schwarz, Superintendent of Cook County Schools ISD166.
