Thursday on Lake Effect:

Business reporter Sean Ryan speaks about the secretive nature of Wisconsin’s effort to lure Amazon’s new HQ2. We examine current strategies to close the achievement gap among students of color at Milwaukee Public Schools, plus speak with a leader of that effort within the district. Essayist Jim Spangler muses on how higher education has changed since he was in college in the 60s. Then, our Fit for You segment takes a close look at the world of supplements and whether they’re truly necessary.
