Remaking PBS as a true educational network

Fun & Games

Over on O’Reilly Radar, MAKE editor and publisher Dale Dougherty has a thought-provoking piece on remaking public broadcasting:

Imagine a broadcast network in America that was dedicated to education, where the best educators had the opportunity to produce its programming, and where individuals as well as institutions could develop a new genre of wide-ranging educational programs? Educational programming could elevate the role of teaching in our culture and promote the value of lifelong learning. This blog post explores why education is a more important role for public broadcasting in America, a new role that would re-align PBS with its original mission as an educational network.

    The idea you generated is great and it would help hundreds of
    thousands of students every year and more and more teachers would be available
    to provide the best college essay writing service
    online to the student. If it happens to be true so it would change the dynamics
    of classic education system of the country.
