I'm told that there's lots of WBEZ-, Catalyst-, Chicago Reporter- and WTTW-provided education coverage coming this week and next, including:
Radio segments include Chicago Public Radios fall series, which premieres today for part one of a two-part series on the digital divide. Is technology the new literacy? Catalyst Chicago contributes. (7:20 am and 5:50 p.m., WBEZ-FM 91.5). You can also listen to it online, after the fact.
Reading events include this evening at the Chicago Public Librarys Logan Square branch. Read and review Educating ESME: Diary of a Teachers First Year by Esme Codell. (3030 W. Fullerton Ave, 7:00 p.m.).
There's also a new story at The Chicago Reporters on potential solutions for Illinois school funding crisis. Are the stars aligned for school funding reform in Illinois? Story available online today (visit www.chicagomatters.org).
Last but not least, there's a WTTW 11 segment tomorrow night for a look at the impact that overcrowding is having on students, teachers, families and communities. (Chicago Tonight, Ch. 11).
