On this encore edition of The Sound of Ideas, we'll talk with Madison and also hear about innovative efforts in Northeast Ohio to make other youngsters as eager to read as she is.

Bid Red.  Yet, I am so angry my granddaughter attends Wade Park, also.  She scored 230 on the 3rd grade literacy test.  She is 9 and now a 4th grader.  She scored in 'uncharted territory' this year.  Yet, they have never tested her for the advanced placement classes.  She was tested, in kindergarten, to read on a 5th/6th grade level.  She read Poe, Robert Louis Stevenson and To Kill A Mockingbird last year and held a conversation on it with college and high school kids.
