Education Committee Meeting/NOC Neighborhoods Organizing for Change

Thursday, January 16, 6:30PM TO 8"00 PM at the next NOC Education Committee meeting.** We'll certainly have good discussions, but we're not just meeting to meet. We're meeting to plan to take action to help create significant structural and cultural changes to improve our public school systems and close the opportunity gaps that result in the ongoing crisis that is the so-called "achievement gap."

Refreshments, perhaps a real dinner, will be served.
Please invite others who care about #EducationEquity

** I'm strongly considering a name change from committee to WORK GROUP... I'll ask members what they think.
