Connections: Previewing Our New Pet Show; Education Discussions

Feb 26, 2015

We start the hour talking with WXXI Morning Edition Host Beth Adams, who is also the host of Unleashed: The Pet Show, that airs tomorrow at Noon. We’ll preview the pilot episode and discuss how you can give feedback about the show.

Then we turn our focus to education. The Fairport School District is hosting a forum on education to bring awareness to the changes that have been made in the education curriculum and the effects it has on teachers and students. We’ll dive more into this with two teachers, John Banes from Fairport and Emmy Thevanesan from Spencerport.

Then we tackle the question, “Why Teach?”. That’s the title of a program that Warner School of Education will host on Saturday. Joanne Larson from the Warner School will give us a glimpse of what the program will cover on Saturday.
