Audio Postcard: Londonderry

We continue our series of audio postcards from Vermont towns with a visit to the Windham County town of Londonderry. To tell our story, we’ve chosen a few transplants – some more deeply rooted than others, but all engaged in activities that are vital to the town.

Teaching Math

Thirty percent of Vermont’s 11th graders scored proficiently in the math portion of this year’s NECAP state assessment tests. We talk with the state’s Director of Educational Assessment, Michael Hock, about the low scores. And we hear from math teachers about how math is taught in classrooms around the state. Also, we look at a new affordable housing report, and we bring you an audio postcard from Londonderry.
