Senate race against Claire McCaskill; it's a seat the GOP hopes to win in its effort to control the Senate. Akin, of course, is the one who made ridiculous statements about rape during a campaign appearance. He's being urged by nearly every Republican bigwig from Romney to Karl Rove to Sen. John Cornyn, chairman of the Senate Campaign Committee, to step down.

The 24-7 school district

I've been doing this work for a pretty long time. The coming school year will be my 38th, which probably qualifies me for "dinosaur status." A lot has changed in education since I walked into my first classroom in 1975. One of the most significant areas of change has been the way in which schools and school districts interact and communicate with families and the general public.
