Thank you to everyone who attended last night's Local Educators' Panel Discussion, featuring School District of University City Superintendent Sharonica Hardin-Bartley, author and academic leader John Wright, Maplewood-Richmond Heights School District Superintendent Karen Hall, and Monsanto's 2017 Science Teacher of the Year Rhonda Stovall. The panelists showed us — often through sharing their personal experiences — how much poverty and other challenges can affect educational outcomes, and discussed in depth their methods to work to achieve educational equity.
For those of you who couldn't make it to the program, don't worry! We recorded the whole thing, and you can watch it below. Join us Thursday, July 13 at 7 p.m. for more discussion of educational equity when we meet to talk about Born Bright: A Young Girl's Journey from Nothing to Something in America by C. Nicole Mason.
