Jun. 13: The Cultural Divide Between Parents and Schools

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.

This discussion will be a good opportunity to hear appropriate options to teach the good and bad aspects of the history of the greatest nation on Earth. The speakers are focused on solutions that have meaningful results in our community to improve student achievement and the success of all students.
