Education News Parents Can Use

Education News Parents Can Use (2002-2009) focused on schools, learning and student success. It was broadcast on the third Tuesday of each month during the school year, offering parents and anyone else with an interest in education vital information about getting involved in children's learning.

  • The show gave viewers the opportunity to ask questions of the experts—including educators, community and business leaders, and concerned parents drawn from communities across the country—and to find out ways to improve teaching and learning in schools and in the home.
  • Featured viewer call-ins, lively discussion and brief segments, including one-on-one interviews, "how-to" demonstrations, video and graphics, and brief conversations with parents, educators, community, business and religious leaders, and education experts.
  • Covered subjects such as reading, technology, school safety, special education and preparing for college. Guests appear live or prerecorded and have included film star Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, NFL football great Darrell Green and PBS's Bill Nye the Science Guy.
  • Targeted an informed citizenry—parents, educators and anyone with a general knowledge of and strong interest in education. Visit Ways to Watch to learn how to view past episodes of Education News.
