This just in.....
My colleague -- and podmate -- Melissa Harris is chatting up all types of sources, and typing away, while developing a story about the University of Maryland's new plan to institute an emergency text-message service in light of the Virginia Tech massacre. The system, however, is voluntary, meaning students have to sign up to receive the messages.
What do you think about that? If you were a student there, would you sign up for the service?
Check out Melissa's story, and check out the results of our first "Education Q and A" Monday, which will focus on school security.
