Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If every visitor to this site in December gave just $10 we could cover our basic operating costs for 2015. Pretty exciting, right? Please do your part today. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else in 2015.

Students all across the country are dusting off their feet, packing their bags and getting ready for another school year.

But what are students going to find once they get to school? What subjects will they learn and how will students be brought into the learning process to make education engaging and inspirational?

Guest:
• Seyi Fayanju, a 13-year-old student at Verona High School in New Jersey where he will be attending 9th grade. Last year, he won the prestigious and highly competitive national Geography Bee championship and joined the US international Geography Bee team this year.
