WHEN: October 17th from 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM

WHERE: Hyatt Regency Wichita – 400 W Waterman St, Wichita, KS 67202

In our newly released book: Giving Kids a Fighting Chance with School Choice we expose the many ways that the Kansas public education system perpetuates race-based and income-based educational discrimination. The book relates one story after another of state and local education officials consciously deceiving legislators and parents…de-emphasizing academics…and ignoring laws and state administrative policy. Jeb Bush, who is Chairman of ExcelinEd will be joining us live to celebrate the launch of this important book.

Please join Kansas Policy Institute for a landmark event addressing local and national problems facing students. The panel will feature pre-eminent thinkers and community leaders who will discuss local and national examples of children being exposed to gender and race issues that some parents find objectionable.  The emotional and educational impacts of these actions will also be explored, along with options for parents and the community to take action.
