American Radio ...

American Radio Works presents a series of documentaries exploring how education during these hard times in America is central to economic opportunity and social mobility and to our individual and collective well-being.

"Early Lessons" airs 11/15
Preschool education started as an experiment in the 1960s and economists now say it's the smartest way to spend public money. Fifty years later, researchers are still learning powerful lessons about America's youngest students.

"Rising by Degrees" airs 11/22
Young Latinos are the fastest growing segment of the U.S. and they are the least likely to go to college. For these students, success in college could have a big impact on the U.S. economy.

"Workplace U" airs 11/29
We know that a good education can be the ticket to a good job. But for many Americans, conventional school isn't working. Turning workplaces into classrooms is giving marginal students a shot at good jobs and big dreams.
