Before it was called "public TV," it was often called "educational TV," and Southern Oregon's PBS affiliate is putting a new focus on education.
Southern Oregon Public TV, SOPTV, is joining the PBS Teacher Community program. The program gives teachers in primarily rural districts, both new and older, a chance to sharpen skills.
Ben Garcia is SOPTV's "Teacher Ambassador" and Larry Conley, a retired teacher, will speak at an upcoming teacher summit.
