This morning we talked education with Itasca Community College provost Bart Johnson.... including the partnership with IASC - Itasca Area Schools Collaborative.  Bart also talked with us about employment trends and working with younger students to get experiential learning in job settings. 

Many schools are adopting one-on-one technology initiatives.  There are pros and cons to this, and retired superintendent Craig Menozzi stopped by to tell us more.
