American Radio Works- Testing Teachers
Teachers matter a lot. Studies show that students with the best teachers learn three times as much as students with the worst teachers. Researchers say the achievement gap between poor children and their higher-income peers could disappear if poor kids got better teachers.
But teacher's unions are pushing back-- they say teachers alone can't overcome the achievement gap, and they say teachers are being blamed for much larger problems in America's struggling schools. American Radioworks digs into this debate about teachers and the research that's fueling it.Tune in weeknights at 8 for American RadioWorks on WBHM/WSGN's Radio Clinic, and let us know what you think on Facebook and Twitter. And when you do, thanks!
Please give us your honest opinions on the new programs. What did you like? What did you not like? And, if you've got the time, tell us why, too. Once we've got the community's "diagnosis," it will help WBHM write a prescription for change!
