The June 27 edition of The Education Town Hall
Live It Learn It
“Live It Learn It exists because learning should be fun and it no longer is fun for our students,” Harper told host Thomas Byrd. “But we also we want students to be good citizens, we want them care about the place they live, take ownership of their lives and their learning.”
The Main Event—GRAY’S EDUCATION CATCH UP
Jounalist Jonetta Rose Barras speaks about her recent piece, “GRAY’S EDUCATION CATCH UP.” Barras reported on Dc Mayor Vincent Gray’s recent education announcement (last week) and the DC Council’s budget hearings (this week).
Has Council Member David Catania (Ed Committee) been responsive to parents and other community members in his introduction of sweeping reform legislation? Is he stepping in to fill a void, because DC Mayor Vincent Gray has stepped away — until just last week — from leadership?
The Education Town Hall is broadcast Thursdays at 11 a.m. (Eastern) on We Act Radio.
