KGOU Sunday Radio Matinee
Sundays 12 - 1 p.m.
Public radio has many great programs that produce just a few episodes a year: Intelligence Squared U.S., America Abroad, and KGOU's student-produced show Assignment: Radio. This is where you'll find these and other limited-run programs.

In the 25 years since Minnesota passed the first charter school law, these publicly funded but privately operated schools have become a highly sought-after alternative to traditional public education. Many charter schools boast of high test scores, strict academic expectations, and high graduation rates. Opponents argue that charters, which are subject to fewer regulations and less oversight, lack accountability, and take much-needed resources from public schools. IQ2's John Donvan moderates this latest IQ2 debate about charter schools... and whether they're "overrated." The debaters are Gary Miron, Jeanne Allen, Julian Vasquez Heilig, and Gerard Robinson.
