College & Successful Careers

Public media stations around the country have been asking teachers a series of questions about things that are most important to them--from challenges to "A-ha! moments," from lessons learned to job satisfaction, from curriculum to parent engagement. The topics tackled in this 'virtual teacher townhall' project  showcase a wide range of voices and provide teachers with a chance to interact and share with one another, all while adding to the conversation on America's schools.

By leveraging public media’s unique combination of production and community engagement skills, stations have been listening, collecting and amplifying these local teacher voices, and are using them inform their local American Graduate: Let’s Make It Happen work. This is made possible with a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and administered by the National Center for Media Engagement (NCME). 50 stations from across the country conducted teacher interviews as part of the project.
