East Harlem Tutorial Program (EHTP) began in 1958 as a children's reading group. Since then it has grown into a multi-site after-school program for public school students and a network of charter schools. The focus is to significantly increase the college graduation rate in East Harlem.This year's Build Love Celebration at EHTP doubles as a special milestone, their 65th anniversary serving El Barrio community; and honoring Sandra Cisneros with EHTP's 3rd Annual James Baldwin Award.

The Public Voice Salon hosted by John Bredin is an open dialogue on culture and ideas with a particular focus on education. In this episode John talks with one of America’s leading education reformers, Deborah Meier. She’s considered the founder of the modern small schools movement. In 1974, the former kindergarten teacher became the founder and director of the much-lauded Central Park East school in Harlem; an alternative school rooted in the progressive tradition of John Dewey. She is also the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, one of the most prestigious funding programs in the world.
