The Guardian reports that the euro "has fallen sharply," after the German news magazine Der Spiegel reported that a debt-burdened Athens was considering "abandoning the euro and reintroducing its own currency."
Greece very quickly denied the report. The Guardian adds:
CEOs at the nation's largest companies were paid better last year than they were in 2007, when the economy was booming, the stock market set a record high and unemployment was roughly half what it is today.
The state of Indiana has approved one of the country's most extensive school voucher programs.
Republican Governor Mitch Daniels says vouchers will level the playing field for Indiana students. Some are hoping this and other efforts will push vouchers into the educational mainstream.
