2015 in Review: Accreditation issues, campus diversity and other big education developments
Accreditation, school transfers and issues of race and discrimination on college campuses have all been big stories in education in 2015. On Monday’s “St. Louis on the Air,” St. Louis Public Radio’s education reporter, Dale Singer, joined host Don Marsh in discussing some of the biggest developments of the year.
"The big story of the past year has been the story that's drawn national and international attention--that would be what is going on in Columbia both at the University of Missouri campus and the University of Missouri system," said Singer.
A few of those topics:
- Ongoing accreditation issues for public schools in Normandy, Riverview Gardens and St. Louis
- School transfers
- Racial tension and a leadership shake-up at the University of Missouri
- Unionization of faculty at colleges and at Grand Center Arts Academy
- New school standards for Missouri
- Diversity on college campuses
"St. Louis on the Air" discusses issues and concerns facing the St. Louis area. The show is produced by Mary Edwards, Alex Heuer and Kelly Moffitt and hosted by veteran journalist Don Marsh. Follow us on Twitter and join the conversation at @STLonAir.
