Rise & Shine: A plan to expand school zone speed cameras

Good Tuesday morning!

In their first meeting of the New Year, the Board of Regents took a stand against the U.S. education department's recent roll back of discipline guidance aimed at reducing racial disparities.

Plus, catch up on what's going on in Denver, which may be where teachers strike next, and Newark, where officials are rushing to develop a new admissions test for magnet schools.
