                                                  Is the Education "Experiment" being recycled?

In the late 50's and through the 70's, private foundations and corporations funded "innovative" experiments to radically change the educational envirnoment.

Nova High School in Davie Florida was one of the high schools who were redesigned for innovation in the 1960's. Funded by the Ford Foundation, some of the innovations from this experiment were helpful and some were ill conceived, even surviving in our schools today and being repackaged as "new ideas."

Ted Wozniak, as student at Nova High School during this period of innovation, will walk us through what his experiences as a student were during this period.  How similar are the current reform efforts to the experiments of the past?

Monday, January 9th, 7pm EST.  Call in with your questions or comments at (515)602-9769.
