Thanks to a Teacher Wall Grant, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Arkansas PBS was given the opportunity to collect, listen to, and amplify local teacher voices on a variety of topics. These topics include conversations surrounding the national dropout crisis, its impact on children, communities and the country, as well as ways to address it.
To hear the voices of other educators from Arkansas and around the nation, visit The Teacher Wall, where America's teachers can share their stories, knowledge, and ideas on our nation's schools. This project, launched in 2011, is a joint project of Scholastic, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and Donors Choose and supports the American Graduate: Let's Make it Happen initiative. To find out more about how public media is responding to the high school dropout crisis, visit the American Graduate website.
