Portland Area Thinking Schools TGITh - Thursday, Nov. 6

in

Dear Portland Area Rethinking Schools Friends,

When we take a close look at the school or schools we know best, how well are they providing the kind of education that all students deserve? How can we use our observations and experiences to promote more equitable schools? Join us next THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 4 to 6, for a PARS community conversation starting with our "Equity Report Card" as a way to identify the schools' strengths and weaknesses. Westminster Presbyterian Church, 1624 NE Hancock, two blocks north of Broadway.

We will also hear a brief report from those who participated in the recent "Teaching for Social Justice" conference in Seattle.
