Mary Harris here, working on what you’ll be listening to this coming week.
We’re excited that the show is headed to Detroit and WDET next week, where Celeste will host on Thursday and Friday. While we’re in town, we’ll be talking about what Detroiters are buzzing about. If you’re one of our Detroit listeners, we’re asking you to write to us and let us know what you love about your city – and what we should talk about while we’re in town.
On to the show!

Greetings from the planning desk. Mary here to fill you in on what the show will be up to all next week.
We’ve set aside the whole week to talk a bit more about all of the changes being wrought in our educational system. In the last month, President Obama proposed a sweeping overhaul of President Bush’s No Child Left Behind regulations. This week, Phase I winners of the Race to the Top grant competition will be announced. We’ll be talking to all the players in the education debate about what needs to be done next and whether real change is possible.
We’re asking our listeners: “What makes a teacher great?” Tell us — and our guests (including Education Secretary Arne Duncan himself) by emailing, leaving a comment below, or calling us at 877-8-MY-TAKE.
Now — on to the show:

It's long been a popular extreme action sport at the Winter X Games. Now ski cross will be included as a new sport at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. The sport involves four to six racers who come out of the starting gate together and make a mad dash down the racecourse. U.S. ski cross coach, Tyler Shepherd, says the sport is dangerous, but fun.

Last week, ten American Baptist community members attempted to take 33 children out of Haiti, claiming their goal was to rescue the children. The Haitian government disagreed and charged the Americans with kidnapping. For many, the story has raised new concerns and questions about adoption.
