Wednesday on Lake Effect: MPS School Governance, From Veterans to College Students, Cheyenne Jackson

Wednesday on Lake Effect:

What’s behind a plan by legislators to change the governance of some MPS schools? We’ll get some analysis from Journal Sentinel education writer Erin Richards.  Plus, we’ll learn about a center that helps people transition from military veteran to college student.  Actor and singer Cheyenne Jackson reflects on his career and the music of the “Mad Men” era ahead of a concert in Brookfield this weekend.  And Milwaukee native Mark Wisniewski turns to the small-time world of horse racing as the setting for his latest novel.
