Honoring Education Through 'PBS Spotlight Education' Week

Spotlight Education is a week of primetime programming airing on WSKG from September 12, 2016 through September 17, 2016.. It features films and documentaries, including special episodes of NOVA, FRONTLINE and PBS NEWSHOUR, a new documentary from POV, and the premiere of TED TALKS, “The Education Revolution.” It concludes with the 5th annual AMERICAN GRADUATE DAY, a broadcast about individuals and non-profit organizations dedicated to helping youth stay on track to high school graduation. This collection features resources about intervention and success strategies, 21st Century learners, and examines how the dedication to teaching all children, especially at-risk students, makes a real difference in communities. New resources will be added to reflect the programming. Spotlight Education celebrates the work of teachers and educators and underscores the importance of convening a dialogue around education.
