Mar. 13: Charter Teachers: Let Your Voice Be Heard
March 9, 2012 KQED has launched American Graduate: Let's Make It Happen -- a local initiative to help combat the dropout crisis in Oakland. KQED and Oakland's Promise Alliance will address the issue by working with local schools, businesses and community organizations to raise awareness of the crisis and its impact on our communities.
KQED will be hosting a series of community events, including Tuesday's Teacher Town Hall seeking to elevate teacher voices and opinions on the topic of drop out. Young people throughout our country are dropping out of school in high numbers and teachers are on the front lines of this national and local crisis. It's important for teachers working at charter schools to share their expertise about what works for engaging and supporting urban youth at the American Graduate Teacher Town Hall, so let your voice be heard!
Tuesday, March 13, 5-8 p.m.
