SUMMER SUMMIT ‘17
Picnic at Nellie's Cave Park in Blacksburg
5 p.m., Saturday, August 26, 2017
Bring a side dish to share.
This year’s event will focus on issues of interest in public education such as discipline bias, achievement gaps, and the scarcity of black teachers and administrators.
The forum will also include a viewing of a new teacher recruitment video created by local high school students. In the video, students express their thoughts about the need for more African American teachers.
Following the viewing, attendees will spend time in small group discussions to discuss potential activities to support the Education Issue Group’s work.
We invite students, parents and local community members to join us!
