Kris Olson was one of the founders of Parents for Public Schools in Waco, Texas. Kris has witnessed some very critical times for her city and its school system. Kris was in school when the courts ordered desegregation. In her lifetime she has seen the system go from promoting busing to discontinuing busing.  Her entire family is a product of the Waco school system. Her city has grown and learned and Kris shares with us what that journey was like.

We introduce a new feature called a brief.  This will be a self contained topic that is usually less then 10 minutes in length.  Mel Levine helps us kick off this feature with a 8:42 show about “rules”.

Michael Robinson is used to being beaten about. He was a race car driver until an unfortunate crash battered him up and ended his career. He has a child with autism and the crash energized him to focusing his future on being an advocate for all extra needs children. He is a registered lobbyist and an Internet advocate. We talk about new ways of funding special education.
