The Education Town Hall with Thomas Byrd is the premiere Live Wire show on We Act Radio, broadcasting from Historic Anacostia in Washington DC. It facilitates effective, community-supported approaches to education — in DC and beyond — and fosters strategic, transformational actions.
The weekly radio forum brings together public officials, advocates, students, parents, and educators to share resources and concerns. The Town Hall blog extends discussion. Participation is encouraged.
Host Thomas K Byrd is a product of DC Public Schools and a long-time education advocate in the District of Columbia.
Virginia Spatz, freelance writer/activist, serves as feature reporter. Other Education Town Hall voices: http://educationtownhall.org/voices/.
