On January 2nd, JPR's News & Information Service will present some special programs for the season. Here's the schedule:
8am/pm: College Choice: The Value of It All
Hosted by All Things Considered’s Robert Siegel, who spent more than a year checking in periodically with nine college seniors, talking with them about their choice of school and how things turned out. The special follows the arc of these visits, capturing the highlights of this ATC reporting project from beginning to end.
9am/pm: California Dream, Undocumented
More than 3 million unauthorized immigrants live in California. This one-hour documentary tells stories of three immigrants from Mexico: a working father of three, a dental school grad student and a man whose gay marriage led to permanent resident status. Despite lack of legal status and without a path to citizenship, they are making lives for themselves and their families.
