A teacher readying her classroom for the first day of school.

On today’s show: We’ll discuss the history of public school teaching in the United States and the education issues we continue to debate. This American Life’s Ira Glass and choreographer Monica Bill Barnes tell us about their unusual collaboration at Town Hall this week called “Three Acts, Two Dancers, One Radio Host.” We’ll explore cyberconsciousness--created online when we share thoughts, memories, feelings, and opinions, photos, and more. Plus: Timothy Denevi talks about what it’s been like to live with ADHD for most of his life.
