The Faculty of Education is producing B.C.’s only television program dedicated to in-depth analysis of education issues.                   

Paul Shaker, dean of education, says each half-hour episode of Your Education Matters will air on the first Monday of every month at 6:30 pm on ShawTV, Channel 4. The program will premiere on Monday, Jan. 21. ShawTV will rebroadcast each new episode three times a week: Mondays at 6:30 pm and Sundays at 9 am and 7 pm.
The show will be hosted by Shaker, who says its purpose is to provide insights and opinions from practitioners and scholars on education issues that matter for parents, students, educators and policy makers.

“Our guests are people who know the key issues and can help our viewers prepare to actively participate in making the education experience a successful one for learners today and in the future,” says Shaker, who looks forward to receiving feedback about the program. “It’s a way for all groups who care about education to connect and share their insights so that we can work together to ensure quality public education.”
