UPDATE: Here’s audio for the show. There was some great questions and comments on twitter as well, I’ll try to do a recap for that tomorrow:
Radio Times on WHYY is running an hour long show today (August 12th) from 10am-11am Called “The State of Public Schools in Camden Part II.”
Here’s the blurb from the Radio Times website:
Last month, Marty sat down with Camden City School District Superintendent Paymon Rouhanifard to discuss the state of Camden’s public school system. Today we hear from three different voices on the same issue. Our guests are DAVID SCIARRA, Executive Director of the Education Law Center, STEPHEN DANLEY, Assistant Professor of Public Policy and Administration at Rutgers University-Camden, and CARMEN CRESPO, a parent activist and organizer for Save Our Schools New Jersey. In this hour of Radio Times, they’ll discuss their vision for the city’s public schools, the plans to add more charter schools to the district, state intervention in Camden, and more.
I’m honored to be a guest, and excited to get the chance to discuss Camden and education with David, Carmen and Marty. As I mentioned when WHYY did “The State of Camden Schools Part I” it would be wonderful to have some local readers call in or ask questions on twitter. Last time twitter was an absolutely fantastic resource as many fact-checked the show while it was still on the air.
You can listen live at 91.1fm in South Jersey and 90.9fm in Central Jersey on your radio sets, and at this link online.
The number to call in is: 1-888-477-9499. You can also send in questions via twitter: @whyyradiotimes
I’ll post the full audio here as soon as it is up on the WHYY website. I hope to hear your voices on it!
