FM #544 - What does the Franklin Education Foundation do? - 05/06/21 (audio)

FM #544 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 544  in the series. 

This session of the radio show shares my conversation with Pandora Carlucci and Joni Magee, Board members of the Franklin Education Foundation (FEF). We had our conversation via virtual conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

We talk about how the FEF supported the Franklin education with supplemental grants to teachers for educational enhancements. The grants total more than $400,000 since 1997.

Pandora was one of the founders of the FEF. 

The recording runs about 26 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Pandora and Joni. Audio file =
