February 24th, 2014 by 
Jack Schneider

Jack Schneider, assistant professor of education at the College of the Holy Cross, will be a featured panelist on Al Jazeera America’s “The Stream,” an award-winning, primetime, interactive news-discussion program. The live television program will air tonight, Feb. 24 from 7:30 – 8:30 p.m. EST.  Watch the segment live on DIRECT TV (Channel 347), DISH Network (Channel 215), or follow the live stream on Twitter (@ajamstream).

Schneider will offer a critical perspective on the Teach for America Program (TFA), discuss the future of teaching as a profession, and provide an overview of contemporary school reform. Schneider is a leading scholar in education reform, and he was instrumental in overhauling the method in which the Boston Globe ranks Massachusetts schools.  His new book  “From the Ivory Tower to the Schoolhouse: How Scholarship Becomes Common Knowledge in Education”  (Cambridge: Harvard Education Press) will be released on April 15, 2014.

The show is hosted and moderated by veteran journalist Lisa Fletcher and digital producer Wajahat Ali. Other panelists include: Camika Royal, TFA ’99, professor of education at Arcadia University; Mckenzi Payne, a TFA Corps Member in Miami; and Maurice Thomas, TFA’08, executive director of TFA Milwaukee.

Al Jazeera America was launched in August 2013, and is one of the largest news organizations in the U.S. with 12 bureaus in major cities around the country, three broadcast centers, a headquarters in New York City and a team of more than to 800 journalists and staff. Al Jezeera has a worldwide audience of approximately 50 million viewers.
