KQED Teacher Town Hall
Tuesday, March 13, 2012 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM (PDT)
KQED wants to hear from you!
Young people throughout our country are dropping out of school in high numbers. Teachers are on the front lines of this national and local crisis. Bring your expertise and share what works for engaging and supporting urban youth at the American Graduate Teacher Town Hall, sponsored by KQED. This event is created by teachers and for teachers and will be moderated by NPR's Snap Judgment host Glynn Washington.
|After you register, please fill out this required survey in order to guarantee your ticket to the Townhall.|
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), in partnership with America's Promise Alliance and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, has launched American Graduate: Let's Make It Happen — a national initiative to help combat the dropout crisis in this country. As part of American Graduate, KQED will address this issue by working with local schools, businesses and community organizations to raise awareness of the crisis and its impact on our communities.
