Millions of American school children begin the day with the pledge of allegiance. But do they, or their teachers, really understand what it means? Host Michel Martin discusses the issue with journalist Mary Plummer, of KPCC, and Peter Levine, director of the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement.
The former Dover Street School on the south side of Milwaukee could be redeveloped into apartments for teachers and other young professionals. MPS will hold a community meeting Wednesday to discuss the idea.
School Board member Meagan Holman says ideas floated in the past for Dover have not gained traction, including as an arts center or charter school. But Holman says people seem excited about the possibility of apartments.
