Speaking of Schools

Turning Around Schools, Economic Education, Dropout Prevent and a State Museum pottery exhibit


Monday - October 12, 2009


Several interesting conversations highlight this week's podcast including one with the Director of the National Education Association. The NEA is contributing one million dollars a year for the next six years to the "Turn Around Public School" initiative to develop comprehensive strategies and policies to increase teacher effectiveness in high-needs schools. We'll also discuss this year's Stock Market Game and an upcoming workshop sponsored by the South Carolina Council on Economic Education entitled "It All Adds Up" with the Council's President. The workshop is for K-12 teachers and is designed to assist them in better managing their personal finances, thereby enabling them to better engage students in state-mandated financial literacy instruction. An exhibit at the SC State Museum features a collection of Pottery with ties to the Palmetto State and the Art Curator there previews some additional fall activities at the Museum. And we'll discuss dropout prevention and what the National Dropout Prevention Center at Clemson has determined are the main causes of this national problem. Please join us for this week's podcast!
