What’s at stake with high-stakes standardized testing of students for Common Core? We talk with a teacher in Seattle who’s leading a movement to opt out of testing, and with a Baltimore City parent and the Maryland Department of Education.

Then – We hear poetry and the music of the Poulenc Trio: a piano, oboe, and bassoon.

Plus: Doreen Bolger, head of the Baltimore Museum of Art, has announced she’s stepping down this summer. She talks with Tom Hall about her 17 years at the Baltimore Museum of Art, and the value of art museums.
