Springfield, Ill. –

Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich will give his State of the State speech at noon Thursday.

It was just a year ago that he used to the speech to pile criticism upon criticism on a state agency most Illinoisans probably weren't aware of. The governor's comments on the State Board of Education and set the stage for a major change in future education policy.

Illinois Public Radio's Sean Crawford reports on the changes that have taken place in the year since the Governor went on the attack.

PROGRAM NOTE: You can hear Governor Blagojevich's State of the State speech on 90.7, KWMU-FM. It starts at noon on Thursday.
