Stateside for Monday, April 28, 2014

Apr 28, 2014

Today on our show, legislators are still trying to decide which standardized test should be used to measure student growth in the classroom, which, in turn, determines the fate of Michigan teachers. Brian Smith, MLive's statewide education and courts reporter, joined us today.

We also check out the New Music Ensemble at Grand Valley State University. They're launching a new project called “Music In Our Parks.”

And 75 years ago today, a book was published that has sold over 30 million copies – "Alcoholics Anonymous: The Story of How Many Thousands of Men and Women Have Recovered from Alcoholism." Dr. Howard Markel joined us today. He's the director of the Center for the History of Medicine at the University of Michigan. 

All that and more on today's show.
