School is out for summer for most, but Tulsa has been playing host to more than 600 teacher trainees earning their stripes--or perhaps rulers--working with Teach for America. The soon-to-be teachers are prepping for a monumental task: two years of teaching in low-income schools across the state. Some will remain in Oklahoma's borders, working to further Teach for America's goals of improving education and student achievement.

If you're reading this right now, you're connected to the internet in some fashion, whether it be via a broadband connection, wifi at a local coffee shop, or on a phone. But the digital revolution hasn't reached every part of the state. Many rural areas remain disconnected from the world wide web. But a new initiative is underway to help people have access to the information super highway.

Ask A Lawyer

In this program, we'll meet Oklahomans who turned to legal system for help with a problem, and the lawyers who assisted them. We'll learn about an innovative program in Tulsa that assists families as they go through a divorce. Participants will explain why the help they received made a difference for their children, and why they believe the program should be expanded statewide. We'll talk to a couple who need a new roof after suffering a devastating Oklahoma hailstorm, only to discover that their insurance company was unwilling to pay their claim. We'll meet a man who found he had no place to live after he struggled to turn his life around after his release from prison. We'll update you on a program providing free legal assistance to military service members and veterans. And our studio audience will have their legal questions answered by a panel of legal experts.

This past week saw the 150th anniversary of the signing of the Morrell Act--a groundbreaking piece of legislation that established land grand universities. This meant that for the first time, average people and not just the privileged elite could attend college. Sunup's Dave Deken looks into the impact the act had on agriculture in the state--including a particular wheat experiment that's over a hundred years old, and still going--and growing--strong.

Underage drinking is a costly endeavor. The medical bills it racks up, the cost of lost work and a slew of other expenses cost Oklahoma taxpayers just short of a billion dollars a year. But a prevention program enacted by the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services is working to stop minors from drinking--and they're seeing results.

Accessible healthcare is an issue for everyone, but perhaps nowhere is it felt more acutely than in rural parts of the state, where hospitals--and doctors--can be more than a half hour away. But a program at the OSU Health Sciences Center is working to fix that problem by training a wave of doctors specializing in rural medicine.
