I have not yet listened to these podcasts - one on teacher skills, the other on a community-based project called Pathways to Education. From Freakonomics:
The response from listeners was huge — and, often, very opinionated. It seems as though everyone had a concrete idea for the one thing that would really improve our education system.
So we’ve decided to make an episode about … what you think is the one thing that would really improve our education system. If all goes well, the episode will be made up primarily of listeners’ voices — that is, your voice.
We want you to answer the following question:
If you had to pick one thing to change about the education system where you live, what would it be? and why?Note, that "where you live" so they are not asking for general answers. It will be interesting to hear what listeners around the country say.
We want you to record your answer on your iPhone, Android phone (or other recording device), and e-mail us the file at firstname.lastname@example.org. Along with your answer to the question, please include your name, where you live, and what you do — student, parent, teacher, school administrator, taxpayer, etc.
Thank you to reader, Tami, for this info.
