Listen Now

At Colorado's largest online school, GOAL Academy, only a fraction of students logged on consistently, according to an investigation by Education Week. Now the school's founder is involved with the opening of two new online schools. Then, a father of modern radical Islamism lived in Northern Colorado briefly in 1949. He later went home to Egypt and authored writings popular with today's jihadists. Also, Colorado State University-Pueblo recently launched the country's first center for cannabis research. And on the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, we hear from a survivor who was on the USS Arizona that day.
