Episode Summary

EDIT
Linda Darling-Hammond: The Flat World and Education
AIRED:
Our nation's founders believed that high-quality public education is a requirement for a robust and functioning democracy.This week will examine current efforts that are dramatically improving the performance of public education in the United States. Specifically, we will look at the impact of talented and motivated superintendents, leadership training for principals, trends in teaching teachers, and innovations in curricula. We will discuss the responsibilities, interactions, and support from national, state, and local government leaders, parents and grandparents, and local community groups.We'll leave with a better understanding of what is required and what is working, and what each of us can do to fulfill the goal of greater academic excellence for students in our schools.moreless
