    School vouchers are a hot topic this year in Harrisburg. Bill Hangley reports about the possibility of lawmakers expanding a scholarship program designed to help poor and working-class kids afford private or religious school by giving tax breaks to companies that donate to scholarship programs. Carolyn Beeler speaks with Benjamin Horton from the University of Pennsylvania  and new research about rising sea levels. Elizabeth Fiedler talks with Rutgers-Camden criminologist Jane Siegel about how prisoners and children cope with incarceration. And the Wanamaker organ in Philadelphia turns 100. Peter Crimmons gives us an audio tour of the organ that’s been played every business day since 1911.
