We’re Seeking Stories for Our Upcoming Special
State of the Re:Union is asking you to share your first-hand accounts of schooling in America. We’re looking for a diverse group of stories from anyone: students, teachers, counselors, parents, valedictorians, high school dropouts -past or present- about how your educational experience has or has not prepared you for life post-high school. We want your insights into how effective our schools really are… in the inner-cities, in the suburbs, and in the rural areas of this country. Your story can come from a place of inspiration or frustration, anger or appreciation, wanting to shock or to inform — it just needs to be true and truly interesting.
How to Submit your Story
You can either call (646) 205-4311 or Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just follow these two easy steps:
- Give your name and email address (please make sure you speak clearly!)
- Do your best to cover the who, what, where, when & why of your story in under a minute.
If your story is selected for broadcast, SOTRU will professionally record you telling it and include it in an hour-long collection of stories.
Deadline for submission is Friday, October 12, 2012.
