Friday on Lake Effect: Case for Common Core, Stories from Wisconsin Farmers, Movies

Friday on Lake Effect:

With Common Core standards in the cross-hairs of many Wisconsin conservatives, including the governor, we hear from one education analyst who believes the education standards hold true to many traditionally conservative values. Later, we’ll hear about a project to collect audio interviews from Wisconsin farmers. Plus, a look back at the movie year-that-was, and one essayist’s guide to watching football, just in time for the playoffs.
