Sure, college isn't exactly affordable, but the question before voters is this: is gambling the right way to pay for scholarships? The Learn and Earn proposal would set up slots parlors in Cleveland and elsewhere with the profits paying for college scholarships. Cleveland's mayor has just announced his support, and if voters approve it in November, slot machines in Ohio will be written into the Constitution. The stakes couldn't be higher. On the Sound of Ideas, we'll hear from all sides. Join us Monday morning at nine, on 90.3.
