'Education Matters' Returns Friday, Jan. 19

Friday at noon on WHRV FM89.

Education Matters - to everyone. This week, WHRO Public Media continues our series on issues facing today’s educators.

  • Why aren’t kids coming to school? Statewide, almost 15% of students are chronically absent.
  • The culture wars once again exploded, this time around Chesapeake’s schools.
  • A long-standing agreement between two localities to create a unified school division will most likely soon be ending.

Dr. Jared Cotton, Superintendent of the Chesapeake City Schools, and, Dr. Olwen Herron, Superintendent of the Williamsburg James City County Schools, are our in-studio guests. They’ll address these and other issues in education, and they will take your calls and comments.
Join us, because Education Matters!
