'Testing Teachers' to Air on WUKY

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 31, 2010) - WUKY-FM, the University of Kentucky's public radio station, will air the thought-provoking documentary "Testing Teachers" at 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 5.

The documentary, produced by American RadioWorks, examines what role teachers are playing in the achievement gap between economically disadvantaged students and their higher income peers.

Research is indicating that students learn more from better quality teachers - as much as three times more than students with the worst teachers. The documentary features educators, students, parents, education analysts and reformers and representatives of teacher unions debating the best way to address improving teacher quality in America.

WUKY is located at 91.3 on the FM radio dial.
