In a town hall meet­ing at Howard University, Bill Cosby and oth­er pan­elists began a frank dis­cus­sion about the state of edu­ca­tion in our nation.  The pro­gram, “About Our Children”, aired on MSNBC on September 20, 2009.  Dr. Cosby pleads with par­ents to BE there for their chil­dren and stop ask­ing schools to do the job that should be done at home.  Michelle Rhee, Chancellor of DC Schools, says schools should wel­come and SERVE par­ents.  Public schools must reach out and make par­ents feel like they are part of the solu­tion. The pro­gram high­lights suc­cess sto­ries of mod­els in pub­lic edu­ca­tion worth explor­ing includ­ing one-on-one tutor­ing and sin­gle gen­der class­rooms.
