How about radio media today instead of print? Today American Radioworks® (ARW) released a conversation (“Does Teach for America Need Reforming?”) that I had with Stephen Smith. What is ARW?:
ARW is the national documentary unit of American Public Media. ARW is public radio’s largest documentary production unit; it creates documentaries, series projects, and investigative reports for the public radio system and the Internet. ARW is based at St. Paul, Minnesota, with staff journalists in Washington D.C., Boston, Massachusetts, and Duluth, Minnesota.
ARW produces documentaries and series projects for news magazines, including All Things Considered, Morning Edition, Marketplace, and The World…
ARW represents a sustained effort at explanatory and investigative journalism. Principal themes include: public affairs documentaries on major social and economic issues, investigative reporting, documentaries that explore significant social and cultural subjects through stories with strong narrative threads and “living History,” an ongoing effort to document the 20th century American experience through the lives of those who witnessed it.
To listen to the ten minute conversation, click Teach for American may be more costly than valuable. Next week Elisa Beard, the co-CEO of TFA, will appear on ARW to respond.
