Even a Supreme Court ruling can't fully halt an ongoing custody battle that hinges on the father's Native American roots, and a rarely heard of law meant to keep tribal families together. The drums of war continue to pound in Syria, and former war correspondent Mike Boettcher explains the conflict as one bipartisan group asks for less military action on America's part, and more humanitarian aid. The application of drones in science and rescue operations grows, but so do the concerns over privacy. Plus, cyber security, the origin of the notorious parking meter, and a trip to the movies on this ONR.

Common Core Education Standards

It's probably the hottest topic in education right now. Common Core state standards consist of language and math standards that states, including Oklahoma, have adopted, designed to give parents, students and teachers a clear idea of what is expected of students to prepare them for college and work. Today, we discuss the pros and cons of common core state standards with: Ann Caine, Superintendent of Stillwater Public Schools; Amber England, Government Affairs Director of Stand for Children, an organization that supports Common Core; Jenni White, President of R.O.P.E., Restore Oklahoma Public Education, a group opposed to Common Core; and, via Skype from San Diego, Dr. Everett Piper, President of Oklahoma Wesleyan University.

The new Kids Count report is out, and while Oklahoma has moved up on the list, there's still room for improvement. Another report is stirring up state legislators, as a consultant group informs the Governor's office that she should accept federal aid and expand Medicaid. But many legislators are pushing for rescuing the soon-to-expire Insure Oklahoma plan. Something perhaps beyond saving? Southwestern Oklahoma's cotton crop, as the drought continues to scorch that corner of the state. And the student loan crises grows with the spike on interest rates for Stafford loans, further hindering outgoing college students. Plus, history from the mouths of soldiers, rural firefighters, and a trip to the swimming hole, on this ONR.

In this episode of the ONR, our reporters go in-depth on the stories swirling around this week's tornadoes, recapping the week and giving updates on the continuing efforts in Moore. Lis Exon digs into the question on the nation's mind-why do Oklahoma schools lack tornado shelters? And while the destruction in Moore is tragic, it wasn't the only community affected this week. Bob Sands explores the towns struck by Sunday's twisters and finds examples of the 'Oklahoma Standard.' Plus, a look at aid efforts, the National Guard on the scene, and a tribute to the first responders and volunteers, on this ONR.
