Today on Your Call: What’s working in schools?

 

On today's Your Call we’ll talk about education success stories.  With another round of severe budget cuts and a heated debate about education reform led by corporate funded think tanks, we’re taking a step back to talk about what’s actually working in our schools. Smaller class sizes? Textbooks that are more relevant to everyday life? More support for teachers?  Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org. What works in your local schools?  It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.

Guests

Katy Murphy, education reporter for the Oakland Tribune
