Hi there — this is the second week of my Wednesday series featuring episodes of Huell Howser’s show, California’s Gold. I’m sharing links to the archived videos, partly because I’ve always enjoyed watching the series, and partly because I’m discovering there are an awful lot of episodes I’ve never actually seen — like this one.
There are literally countless success stories in our state’s public education system, and in this one-hour special, Huell visits four schools where all the elements for success – parents, teachers, students, administrators and the community – have come together to really make a difference. From one-room school houses to inner-city high schools, we get a chance to see California’s future gold in the making.
Now, I’ll admit that it sounds like a fairly dry subject! But I’m familiar enough with Mr. Howser’s style of reporting that I think the journey will be worth taking. I hope you agree.
