Abstract/Description

What was public education like before the stronghold of standardized testing surfaced? After conducting research in the archives at Pogue Library, Murray State University journalism students conducted oral history interviews as part of an intensive focus on public education news reporting. The individuals who were interviewed shared their memories and stories of being a student, parent or teacher. This long-term project enabled students to receive experience in oral history as a news-gathering technique. Oral histories, news stories and photographs are stored online at kyeducationstories.omeka.net as exhibit items.
