This Week On Smart City: Cities And Schools Look Ahead

This week on Smart City we're looking ahead for a view of the city in the year 2050. Maureen McAvey of the Urban Land Institute joins us to talk about what the city will look like 40 years from now, and what changes we need to make the future greener, richer, and most importantly, fun.

And we're joined by Dr. Beverly Hall. Dr. Hall has served as the superintendent of Atlanta Public Schools for a decade and was recently honored by the American Association of School Administrators as their 2009 National Superintendent of the Year. We'll talk about the innovations that are happening in Atlanta Public Schools and why improving student achievement is no mystery.

Smart City is a syndicated, weekly hour-long public radio talk show that takes an in-depth look at urban life: the people, places, ideas and trends that affect us all. Host Carol Coletta, president and CEO of CEOs for Cities, talks with national and international public policy experts, economists, business leaders, artists, developers, planners and others on the pulse of city life for a penetrating discussion on urban issues.

Smart City is broadcast at 6 a.m. Saturday and Sundays on WKNO-FM, but it is also webcast and podcast so you can listen to it anytime you like. For the webcast, times for the broadcast in other cities and to sign up for the podcast, visit our website.
