Public Broadcasting Reports on Education

strict warning: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/websites/teachinghistory.org/sites/all/modules/date/date_api.module on line 866.
May 12 2008

Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) stations recently aired a series of reports about The Business of Education during The Nightly Business Report. The series highlighted on the influence of the No Child Left Behind Act in the development of the educational products and services industries. Reports discuss standardized testing, tutoring services, charter schools, educational technology and the educational stock market. Each report includes post-broadcast transcripts, blog entries and related links.

And on National Public Radio (NPR), a series of reports on Innovative Trends in High School looks at new ideas from secondary educators across the country who are working to break patterns of failure. Listen to audio files and find transcripts of broadcasts.
