Educational TV is now more important than ever
As we traverse the uncharted waters of this COVID19 pandemic unforeseen problems crop up that require the involvement of people from all walks of life to resolve. Such is now the case as we head into the new school year here in Georgia.
Public schools across our State struggle with the immediate issue of how to begin the new school year. Using Henry County as an example they are set on a combination of in school and virtual classrooms and it is this virtual aspect that prompts people like Reverend Randall Johnson and I to get involved.
Both of us have children already grown and making their way in this ever changing world and both of us have Grand Children currently in a public school system in various geographical locations spread across the landscape of America. For this reason Randall and I began discussing what we could do to help in this arena of education. To that end we have determined there is an important role we can play in this new and evolving frontier and PBS is uniquely positioned to take a major role in the idea we've come up with.
We are currently working with Sen. David Perdue's staff who are excited about our concept. In addition we unveiled it at a Town Hall gathering this past weekend Where Henry County Board of Education Superintendent Dr. Mary Davis was speaking to a crowd of concerned citizens, parents and teachers. Everyone there gave us their enthusiastic approval for the plan.
During the time we were researching possible venues to host such an endeavor we stumbled across https://gpb.pbslearningmedia.org/ out of Illinois. Having found that we became convinced that this is an idea who's time has come. Digging a little deeper we found https://www.gpb.org/education.
The template is already there and will need further tweaking to conform to Georgia's school cirriculum but at least we won't have to invent the wheel which now leaves us free to pursue more venues to enhance distribution so that even the remotest of Georgia's 159 counties will have accessibility.
This is the reason for this message and I will do my best to insure this reaches the responsible parties within the Georgia PBS network of broadcasters first. From there we will be reaching out to other broadcasters and bring them together for this endeavor to make sure that in fact no child will be left behind. We can envision this service being something everyone in Georgia will get behind not just conceptually but also financially.
Our intent is to see this message make its way to the Governors desk and in turn the desks of every Georgia Legislator. In addition we would ask for any assistance from any source to aide in our effort to secure the necessary resources to expand the reach of this and exponentially increase the call for this to become an integral part of Georgia's teaching and learning experience.
