• Summer's almost over and children are heading back to school. But your kids could be learning a different kind of lesson in their classroom: Anything is possible if you have money and a good attorney. Rob Weil, deputy director of education issues with the American Federation of Teachers, joins us to explore the growing phenomenon of parents suing for better grades.

This is also a time for you to participate. Gibson will be reading some of your e-mails on the air, so drop him a line at myword@foxnews.com.
