The public is invited to fifth grade and middle school academic competitions to be held Tuesday, March 23 and Thursday, March 25. All rounds of these academic competitions, known as E-Team Tournaments because many of the questions are economics related, are free to attend.
Best of Florida Matters, Part 2 - WUSF 89.7 Spring Membership Campaign
Listen back to a few of the engaging conversations we brought you recently on Florida Matters. A group of local Haitians shares their efforts to find family members after January’s devastating earthquake there, and they offer their thoughts on the future of the country. We take you to a local school to see what full implementation of the class-size amendment means for students, teachers, and administrators. And we find out why some military veterans end up without jobs and living on the street through the eyes of two homeless veterans.
