12:02 a.m. Scanner: A Retrospective in Seven Parts This seven-part series focuses on the extraordinary work of Scanner (British artist Robin Rimbaud) who traverses the experimental terrain between sound, space, image and form, creating absorbing, multi-layered sound pieces that twist technology in unconventional ways. From his early controversial work using found mobile phone conversations, through to his focus on trawling the hidden noise of the modern metropolis his restless explorations of the experimental terrain have won him international admiration. free103point9 is delighted to be working with the artist on this special broadcast event February 3-9, from midnight to 6 a.m. Each night, the broadcast will focus on a specific theme including live performance, sound installation, dance scores, film scores, composition and radio works.

10 a.m.: Education News: Racism, Class and the Attack on Public Education In this episode we spend the hour listening to a talk by Brian Jones titled "Still Separate, Still Unequal: Racism, Class and the Attack on Public Education." He was speaking to a group of teachers and parents in New York City this past February as part of Black History Month. Brian has worked as an elementary school teacher in Harlem and is currently a fourth grade public school teacher in Brooklyn, NYC. Brian participated with the Grassroots Education Movement (GEMNYC) to produce the documentary An Inconvenient Truth Behind Waiting for Superman in 2011. This documentary was a response to the widely publicized film Waiting for Superman, produced by Participant Media, which also produced An Inconvenient Truth. Education Radio episode 5 "Exposing the Myth of Education Reform" from September of last year highlighted Jones' work on this documentary and can still be heard on our blog. In his talk, Brian draws connections between attacks on labor and attacks on public schools. He suggests education reformers' emphasis on test scores, teachers and outcomes is about "excellence" (using their words), but not equity. Brian addresses the increasingly undemocratic process by which these neoliberal reforms are being implemented, and the potential power of true solidarity between parents and teachers.
