The Best Of Our Knowledge # 1118
http://www.wamc.org/prog-tbook.html – The recent drug related violence in Mexico has been in the news...but the consequences to children living in the affected regions of the country have gone largely unreported. Today on The Best Of Our Knowledge...we'll hear how one teacher kept her students calm and safe in the middle of a drug related cross fire.
We'll also find out how some California libraries are dealing with the budget crisis...and we'll spend an academic minute finding out how the politics of the 20th century made for great children's literature.
