FROM "TEACHED" to "TED TALKS ED"
TEACHED was created to put the voices of the unheard "on the loudspeaker," letting the public hear from those closest to the day-to-day reality of our education system: teachers, students, parents, community leaders and others. It's working. Pearl Arredondo, a public school teacher featured in our short film "The Blame Game," was recently invited to speak at PBS' "TED Talks Education" Special. Don't miss her amazing story.
