Hosted by

The murder of 17-year-old Lily Burk has received saturation coverage. Does a brutal crime contain any lessons about the failure of treatment programs or the risk of early parole? Could commercial sponsors save state parks from the Governor's line-item veto? On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, the Obama Administration wants the states to "Race to the Top" by competing for $4.3 billion for education reform. Is that enough to get teachers unions to change their minds on charter schools, merit pay or standardized tests to evaluate teacher performance?
