Strengthening Education Reporting - KERA Additional Year

KERA expanded the scope of its Strengthening Education Reporting efforts by continuing to produce its American Graduate: Class of '17 series, which followed eight North Texas students on their journeys from eighth grade to high school graduation. A significant contributor of award-winning content to CPB's American Graduate initiative, KERA developed and produced the multiplatform, deep-dive education series Stories of Champions, which depicted profiles of North Texans making a difference in the education system. All content produced under this grant was distributed through the radio broadcast, online and through social media platforms and shared with attendees during community engagement events. All audio content is available to other stations on the American Graduate Playlist on
