HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Advocates for charter schools and education reform are holding a rally at the state Capitol, urging Connecticut lawmakers to replenish cuts they’ve made to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s education spending proposals.
The Democratic governor, who made education reform the centerpiece of last year’s legislative session, is expected to appear at Thursday’s event on the north steps of the Capitol. Students and clergy are also anticipated to be on hand.
Advocates said the spending plan recently passed by the General Assembly’s Appropriations Committee cuts $47.1 million from Malloy’s education initiatives. For example, the committee included less funding for charter schools and the Commissioner’s Network — an effort to help low-performing schools.
Malloy and legislative leaders are expected to spend the coming weeks negotiating a final agreement on a new, two-year budget.

Murphy Hicks Henry is a professional banjo player and writer who founded the Women in Bluegrass newsletter and has written regularly for Bluegrass Unlimited and Banjo Newsletter. She answered our questions about her book Pretty Good for a Girl: Women in Bluegrass.
Q: You’re a professional banjo player. Growing up, did you encounter those who dismissed your playing because “you’re a girl.”
Henry: Oh, yes! I don’t think many women in bluegrass have escaped hearing the phrase, “you’re pretty good for a girl.” I know for me, since I was a girl, I felt like I had to play louder, harder, and better than any of the guys around me to be accepted—and respected. That was very important to me. In no way did I wa

A memorial commemorating the iconic Castle on the Hill is planned for the Alva campus of Northwestern Oklahoma State University by the Northwestern Historic Preservation Task Force.
The Castle on the Hill was built and dedicated in 1898 as attendance and faculty increased at the newly established Northwestern Territorial Normal School, now Northwestern Oklahoma State University. The building’s turrets, battlements and towers gave it its castle-like character, and it was said to be one of the largest and most beautiful normal school buildings west of the Mississippi River.
The Castle burned March 1, 1935, in an uncontrollable fire, which destroyed the building and its contents: library books, historical documents, treasured pieces of art, band instruments and uniforms, museum relics, government publications, pictures and unique furnishings. H

While the economy is slowly recovering, some recent college graduates are still struggling to find work.
Last month, Curran Consulting Group analyzed Bureau of Labor Statistics data on unemployment and college graduates. The report stated that 6.4% of young college graduates were unemployed in March 2013. It is true that those with a college degree experience a better chance of being employed , but young college grads are “the group with the greatest debt burden.” And, according to the Economic Policy Institute’s brief The Class of 2013, over ”the next 10 to 15 years, those in the Class of 2013 will likely earn less than if they had graduated when job opportunities were plentiful.”
The context for college graduates and their struggle to find suitable, well-paying work that can help alleviate their student debt provides a fascinating backrgound for a recent study from More than a Resumé.
