About Spotlight Education

This fall, learn about the toughest challenges and brightest ideas in education today.

What is Spotlight Education?

Spotlight Education is a special week of primetime news, public affairs and documentary programming on PBS stations Sept. 12-17 (check local listings) focusing on the brightest ideas and toughest challenges facing today’s students and America’s education system. Short-form and full episodes from the week, interactive content modules and a social hub for Spotlight Education will be available on PBS.org and Americangraduate.org. Spotlight Education also kicks-off of a year-long teacher support campaign —“Teach Boldly” — led by PBS and local member stations across the country. Major funding for Spotlight Education is provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) as part of American Graduate: Let’s Make it Happen, a long-term public media initiative to help all students graduate from high school ready for college and careers.
