On this week's show, we'll hear about a fight over school lunches and learn how one New Bloomfield school was able to introduce new technology into the classroom.

Schools across the U.S. are putting more fruits and vegetables on lunch trays and less meat and bread. The changes are meant to counter childhood obesity, but parents say their kids are still hungry after they clean their plates. Harvest Public Media's Grant Gerlock reports that for some schools and families the changes have been hard to swallow.

And, as some schools struggle with funding, one rural Mid-Missouri school is able to invest in technology despite the tough economic times. KBIA’s Evan Townsend has the story.
