The Best Of Our Knowledge #1162

Dec 26, 2012

We made it!  The year is just about over, and it was a year with a lot of loud politics.  But how many Americans really understand the system behind the politics?  There has been a call for a greater emphasis on civics education in the US. We spoke about that earlier this year with an author who says the only way to bridge the education gap between the rich and inner city schools is to realize that there is also a gap in those student’s life experiences.  Today on The Best Of Our Knowledge, why schools should say No Citizen Left Behind.

We’ll also find out why a group known for farm life and education is building robots...and spend an academic minute figuring out why we remember some things better than others.
