On this week’s broadcast:

Students, across the country – enrolled at the “for profit” ITT Technical College campuses – including one, at the Pittsburgh Mills – suddenly found the doors locked, to that school – this week. ITT says it closed all 130-campuses, because it couldn’t overcome sanctions imposed by the United States Department of Education.

We’ll talk with the Director of Admissions of Rosedale Technical College – Debbie Bier – about the state of vocational education, in this country. Rosedale does not offer the same programs as ITT, but is trying to help steer ITT’s former students, to alternative places, to complete their education.

Then, Family Links steps up – to meet an increased need, to help those individuals, families, and communities, in our area, affected by a growing opioid drug addiction crisis – that is also spreading, across America.

Finally, we’ll tell you how you can complete your grocery shopping, without ever leaving your house. We’ll introduce you to the founder and president of Zing Basket – Varol Ablak.
