For those who do have little ones, the Bay Area has a lot of preschools for you. There are close to 200 in San Francisco alone. And that’s not even counting Head Start programs, which operate in all 50 states.
Many people believe that Head Start was America’s first government-run educational program for young children. It launched in 1964. But World War II actually produced an earlier model, right here in the city of Richmond.
On the next Your Call, we’ll talk about how global events are inspiring political action. On March 1st, protesters in support of Occupy Education California will begin a “99 Mile March for Education and Social Justice” to the capitol building in Sacramento. What historical or recent event encouraged you to get politically involved? Join us at 10 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Is there a moment that caused you to get involved? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
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 email@example.com. What works in your local schools? It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.
