Superintendent Arlene Ackerman is going national when her interview with CNN's education correspondent Steve Perry airs on Anderson Cooper 360 tonight. Her interview, and the show's focus on the district's Parent University, is scheduled to air several times on CNN and Headline News over the next several days, according to the district.

The district has boasted that the program has assisted over 22,000 parents across the city with classes and workshops on family and financial literacy, professional certifications and college degree attainment, and other matters, since it began nearly three years ago. 

But with the district facing a massive budget shortfall, "the viability of the program is in jeopardy," officials said. They hope the national exposure will shed light on how important the program is to helping turn the city’s public schools around.

Air times are as follows:


1. April 7, 11p.m. to midnight, CNN (Anderson Cooper 360)

2. April 8, 10a.m. to 11a.m., and 2p.m. to 3p.m., Headline News

3. April 9, 7a.m. to 8a.m., 10a.m. to 11a.m., 1p.m. to 2p.m.,and 3p.m. to 4p.m., Headline News

4. April 9, 7p.m. to 8p.m., CNN

5. April 10, 7a.m. to 8a.m., 10a.m. to 11a.m., 1p.m. to 2p.m., 3p.m. to 4p.m., Headline News
