Dakota Midday: "School Of The Future"

Stanford Graduate School of Education

Once the envy of the world, American schools are now in trouble. Test scores show American children lag far behind their peers in other industrialized countries. How can our schools help students of all backgrounds meet the challenges of tomorrow? Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. Central, NOVA explores how the science of learning and technological innovations are transforming the way we teach and learn.

Linda Darling-Hammond, the Charles E. Ducommun Professor of Education at the Stanford Graduate School of Education and President and CEO of the Learning Policy Institute, appears in NOVA's "School of the Future." She joined Dakota Midday during our week-long spotlight on education. Darling-Hammond is author or editor of more than a dozen books and more then 300 articles on education policy and practice.
