Last week Vermont Education Commissioner Richard Cate said Vermont
schools aren’t meeting the needs of half of its students. He was responding to recent standardized test
scores which show no change from previous years. Over the past year, Cate has been pushing for
major changes, including consolidating school districts. Richard Cate joins us on the program to talk
about what he means when he says the education system needs to be revamped. (Listen)

Also, we explore the connection between St. Michael’s College
and the Ilula Orphan program in Tanzania. The college runs a service learning project
in the African country, and this month visitors from the orphan program are in Vermont
to share the stories of these children. (Listen)

And, on this Valentine’s Day, we go looking for love on Burlington’s
Church Street. (Listen)
