State Now Running Davenport School District

dav_sch_logo.jpg

On Midwest Week, the Iowa State Board of Education decides to do something it's never done before - take control of a local school district.

Herb Trix's guest is Tony Watt, reporter for the Quad City Times and Dispatch-Argus.

You can also hear Midwest Week Fridays on WVIK at 6:20 pm during All Things Considered.  

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
