201003301

Intents & Purposes Radio with Levi and Tim, Tuesday, March 30, 2010: Public education in the U.S. is going through a crisis: Here in California the controversial High School Exit exam has been accused of disadvantaging females and minorities. Dr. Beth Yeager, director of the Center for Literacy & Inquiry in Networking Communities at UC Santa Barbara and Stephanie Couch director of the K-20 California Educational Technology Collaborative were among the researchers and policy makers who have created a project called Stepping Into Your Future, an online and in-classroom program which aims to bridge that performance gap. Interview recorded March 8, 2010. Listen here.
