MICHEL MARTIN, HOST:
And speaking of education, we have this programming note for you. On Wednesday, October 10th, NPR's TELL ME MORE will host a live radio broadcast and Twitter education forum focusing on education issues. Leading up to the forum, we'd love to start a dialogue with you.
We're inviting educators, parents, reporters and everybody else to join us via Twitter. We want to hear what you think is working well in education now and what isn't. We want to ask what role teachers, parents, the government and private sector should be playing. We want to ask if you see technology and social media as effective tools in the classroom or as distractions. Our conversations are focused on K through 12, but if you are interested in education, we are interested in you.
Join us on Twitter today using hashtag #npredchat, and let's begin the exchange of ideas. To learn more, go to npr.org and click on the Program guide and go to TELL ME MORE. TELL ME MORE's Twitter education forum is produced in partnership with NPR's StateImpact project, as well as member station WLRN in Miami.
