“The Education Of Ms. Groves” Wins Peabody Award

By Alexander Russo — April 04, 2007 1 min read

There are at least two education-related pieces I hadn’t seen among this year’s recently-announced Peabody Awards (here), including Left Behind: The Failure of East St. Louis Schools (which appears to have nothing to do with NCLB and was produced by KMOV-TV, St. Louis, MO) and The Education of Ms. Groves (“Inspiring but not schmaltzy, this program tracks the learning curve of a wide-eyed, first-year middle-school teacher in Atlanta who discovers her job demands skills and resources as well as idealism.” Produced by Dateline NBC).
