NPR's Ira Glass started out as an education reporter in Chicago, you may know, and he's always had a soft spot for education stories.
This week, his TAL show is focusing on a middle school: "This week, at the suggestion of a 14-year-old listener, we bring you stories from the awkward, confusing, hormonally charged world of middle school."
Here's the teaser audio. Hope they do a good job. Can't wait to hear it. Meantime I'm calling around to see if I can get any details about the show's focus, the school focused on, etc.
