What should we expect from public education? How can schools best serve the diverse needs of their students? How do schools reflect their neighborhoods and communities?
Continuing Ed. is a yearlong, statewide series of free public programs that put parents and schools back at the center of conversations addressing these difficult questions. Working with parent organizations and local schools, Continuing Ed. forefronted the experiences of families as they navigate their local public school system – providing an honest discussion of the problems that Illinois families still face while also celebrating the inspirational work that communities and educators are managing to do in tough times.
Continuing Ed. will air on WTTW - PBS Chicago Monday, January 22 at 10:30pm and Sunday, January 28 at 4pm.
