We issue a correction about a story on the teacher's union in Philadelphia and ask for listener questions about Ebola.

AUDIE CORNISH, HOST:

Every new development in the Ebola story brings new questions. If there's something you're wondering about, let us know.

MELISSA BLOCK, HOST:

You can send us your questions through a form we've posted on Facebook and Twitter. We're in both places - @npratc. And now a quick correction. Yesterday, we aired a story about the cash-strapped Philadelphia public school system revoking its contract with the teachers union.

CORNISH: We reported that the district will no longer pay for teachers' health coverage.

BLOCK: That's not correct. What we should've said is that the district will use a new benefit system that requires teachers to begin contributing to their health insurance premiums.
