Edgehill UMW to present: "School choice: A social justice issue"
On Thursday, May 4, Edgehill UMC's United Methodist Women will present "School choice: A social justice issue" at Edgehill UMC and all are invited. The program will begin at 6:00pm.
Concerned about welfare of all children in public schools? Wondering what school is best for your child? Presenters Tara Johnson and Suzie Johnson will speak about their experinces.
Tara and husband, Jai, chose to send their daughters to a “poor performing” neighborhood school. Suzie chose to teach in a “poor performing” neighborhood. Why? How does this school choice affect the quality of education for their children and the other neighborhood school children? How has the quality of education, teacher performance, diversity, equity and school board decisions/representatives, been impacted by their choice? Through the eyes of these two women, the social justice effects of school choice will be explored.
