From funding and teacher shortages to alarmingly high drop-out rates, America is facing an unprecedented crisis in education. Fortunately, some schools are getting it right. Which ones and what’s their recipe for success?
CNN kicks off “Fix Our Schools” week on August 30th, highlighting concrete, unique solutions to the troubles facing the nation’s schools. And we're making this special public appeal right now to hear directly from parents, students and their teachers. We want you to tell us:
- Why is your school the best?
- Why is your teacher the best?
- And parents, what would you be willing to pay to fix our schools?
- What programs would you be willing to forgo in order to ‘fix’ the classroom?
Whether it's a particular teaching style or an innovative after-school program, show us through photos and video the small things that are making a big difference in your school today.
