One of the reasons Town Square Delaware was created was to foster real conversation about important topics that matter to Delawareans. One way to do that is to recruit great contributors who have a lot to offer, and leave them free to write about what moves them. Up until now, that has been our approach, and will continue to be a big part of TSD.
In August, however, we will be adding a new layer.
We have chosen to focus our attention for the month of August on education in Delaware. So each day of the month leading up to the beginning of the new school year, we will be posting content from teachers, parents, administrators, board members, government officials and community members about education in Delaware.
We have received commitments from some people already, but our goal is to broaden the conversation as far and wide as possible, so we invite members of the public to submit their thoughts on education as well.
Anyone who is interested in contributing an editorial or column to the series should submit their final draft (500-800 words) along with a short bio of the author to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than July 29, 2011. Each submitted piece that meets our content guidelines will be considered for publication in the series.
Let’s talk about education!
