The Best Of Our Knowledge #1239

Jun 18, 2014

The number of students who drop out of high school is still too high in many cities...and the percentage gets higher when talking about minority students.

Today on the Best Of Our Knowledge, we'll about a west coast city’s efforts to fight the dropout rate in African American students.

Then we'll head to the clinical laboratory and learn about Micro RNAs...and what they can tell us about heart attacks. Hear about a book where the questions are way cooler than the answers...and spend an academic minute talking to robots.
