Chasing The Dream: Poverty and Opportunity in America

Chasing The Dream: Poverty and Opportunity in America

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 30TH, 7:00PM

A Tale of Two Teachers is a WLIW-FM special program and a part of Chasing the Dream: Poverty, Justice and Opportunity in America, a public media reporting initiative from The WNET Group.

Bob McKinnon, host of the podcast Attribution, talks with two married Long Island teachers. They share their extraordinary experiences teaching in different Long Island schools over the course of this challenging year.

This special broadcast is not about good schools or bad schools, neither about good or bad students. In fact, it’s not about anything good or bad. But it is about the opportunities afforded to our children and the potential they have to pursue their dreams. Our goal is that over the thirty minutes, listeners reflect on how the educational experience may differ from child to child on Long Island. And hopefully this will change the way we see all of our schools and students moving forward.

Major funding for Chasing the Dream is provided by The JPB Foundation with additional funding from The Peter G. Peterson and Joan Ganz Cooney Fund. You can learn more at pbs.org/chasingthedream
