Hosted by Rose Martin, Ed.D, the series brings experts around the table to discuss timely educational issues affecting Southwest Virginians. From safely opening schools and academic logistics, to culture, climate and curriculum, the experts share their insights and inform viewers on topics they care about. We are a “Community of Learners” supporting each other, and we remain committed to helping each student reach their full potential.

The original series was produced in 2011 and covered topics ranging from how to end bullying to pre-school readiness. In fall 2020, in response to the COVID 19 pandemic, we brought the show back to explore what it would take to re-open Virginia schools and more.
