Morning Shift: August 19, 2015

We take a deeper dive into the proposed CPS budget and how it will affect special education. We hear the voices of parents and talk to someone who crunches the numbers for the disability advocacy group Access Living. Illinois Senate President John Cullerton joins us to discuss his proposed bill to help CPS, which rivals Gov. Bruce Rauner's proposal. Vocalo’s Ayana Contreras comes in with a little Reclaimed Soul. And dropping your kid off for his or her first year at college is an event full of emotions, and full of questions. How will they spend their time? What kinds of challenges will they face? And, how much can you...or should you…”parent” your college-age child? We talk with the author of the new book “Off To College” A Guide for Parents.”
