Linda Ellerbee: Growing a Nation of Rowdy Citizens

With digital media, 24/7 current-events programming, and daily news broadcasts, kids don’t need help finding out what’s going on in the world. Understanding what they find, however, can be difficult. For 15 years, Linda Ellerbee has written and produced Nickelodeon’s Nick News to inform young people about world events and ease their anxieties about everything from politics and family to school violence and war.

In this interview with Cable in the Classroom Magazine’s Lauren Capolupo, Ellerbee discusses the importance of talking with kids about current events, encouraging opinions, and inspiring action.

Increasing Achievement, Options, and Engagement with Cable

At the 20th Annual National School Boards Association's Technology and Learning Conference in Dallas (NSBA T+L 2006), Cable in the Classroom's Senior Director of Education Policy, Douglas Levin, moderated a panel designed to showcase some of the innovative ways that the cable industry is extending its longstanding philanthropic commitment to education by providing broadband and telecommunications services to school districts.

The panel featured two presentations: one from Dr. Jon Campbell of Etowah County School District, Alabama and his cable provider, Julia North of Charter Business and the other from Terrence Clark of Bethpage School District, New York and his cable provider, Trent Anderson of Cablevision Systems.

Listen and learn more about these partnerships and the wide range of ways the cable industry is working hand in hand with educators to improve student achievement, educational options and student engagement.
