Friday News Roundup

On this week’s local news roundup, protests break out before a CMS Board meeting about how teachers should handle transgender students. The board also began discussions on how to diversify magnet schools. The Whitewater Center reopens its rafting channels after being shut down in June because of a rafter’s death. And the Olympics are going on in Rio with some athletes from here!  Our roundtable of reporters discuss those stories and more. 

Plus, we'll be using theme music submitted by Samuel Flynn. Listen to it here.
