Join The Education Conversation With Tell Me More

Play associated audio

Education has always played a key role in the American dream of advancement and opportunity. But, to this point, the issue has not been a major topic of discussion in this election season. On Wednesday, October 10th, NPR's Tell Me More with Michel Martin will host a LIVE radio broadcast and Twitter Education Forum, focusing on the education issues that matter.

Leading up to our event, we'd love to begin a dialogue with you, our audience. We're inviting educators, parents, reporters and the digital public to join in via Twitter. We want to hear about what you think is working well NOW—and what isn't? We'd love to know if there are innovations you've seen or experienced that you want others to know about. What kind of teaching techniques or environments helped your child –or you—in school? Tell us more about whether you see technology and social media as effective tools in the classroom, or as distractions. If you work or travel overseas, how do you think our students compare to the global citizens they'll be competing against in the future?

And who is responsible for making our schools better? What role should teachers, parents, the government, and private sector, be playing right now? Who is stepping up to the plate—and who isn't? Our conversations are focused on K through 12, but if you are interested in education, we are interested in you.

Join us on Twitter today, using #npredchat and let's begin the exchange of ideas! Tell Me More's Twitter Education Forum is produced in partnership with NPR's StateImpact project as well as member station WLRN in Miami, Florida.
