Both the U.S. and Cuba have relaxed travel restrictions so family visits are easier and more money is flowing to the island nation, so what’s next?  

NPR Morning Edition host David Greene joins us after spending a week in Cuba, talking with government officials, entrepreneurs, shopkeepers and fishermen.

Did the state fudge data over child abuse deaths?  A Miami-Dade grand jury accuses the state child welfare agency of under-counting child abuse and neglect deaths.  In the meantime, Governor Scott signs into law an overhaul of the Department of Children and Families. We hear from the DCF interim secretary Mike Carroll.

And the Sun Sentinel reports on the increasing rate of charter school closings in South Florida.

NPR’s Greg Allen co-hosts with host Tom Hudson.  Also joining us is Carol Marbin Miller of the Miami Herald, John O’Connor and Tim Padgett of WLRN-Miami Herald News and Amy Shipley of the Sun Sentinel.
