About the Show

This week on Smart City: two different cities, two unique challenges. We'll speak with Ana Menezes and Lindsay Enters from the group TeachNOLA. The organization works to bring the best and brightest teachers to New Orleans and also helps talented people earn their teaching certificate to bring a high caliber of teachers to New Orleans Public Schools.

We'll also speak with Gabriel Metcalf of the San Francisco Planning and Urban Research Association, also known as SPUR. The organization has had a long history of helping San Francisco become the successful central city of California's bay area. We'll find out what role SPUR has had in the city's progress and what the future of the organization will be.
