CitizenDetroit Dinner & Dialogue - Detroit Public Schools
June 9 2016 at 5:30 PM
The Cathedral Church of St. Paul
We all know how important it is that our children get a good education, but public education in Detroit - both traditional and charter - is in crisis.  As the number of students attending DPS has declined, so has funding for school operations, causing DPS to face huge financial challenges.  Many public charter schools are also struggling. The problem is not just financial.  There are some fine schools in Detroit, with passionate teachers and leaders who have dedicated their lives to teaching our children, but far too many of our kids are not getting the education they need in order to be successful in the workplace or in college. As we prepare for DPS to transition back to local control, serious issues have to be addressed: academic achievement; financial stability; corruption; the condition of school buildings; and finding and supporting the best teachers. Most of the solutions to these challenges will come from us, the citizens of Detroit, through local control. Get the facts to make informed decisions.  Come join CitizenDetroit and learn about the past, present, and future of Detroit Public Schools.      The event takes place from 5:30-8:30 p.m. (doors open at 5pm for dinner).  Register today!  Two opportunities to attend (select only one date): Thursday, June 9, 2016 Thursday, June 16, 2016 NOTE: The Thursday, May 26 event date has been cancelled.Limited free parking is available on-site.  (Enter from Warren Avenue)  Admission is free, but reservations are required.  To attend, RSVP online or call (313) 577-5550. Space is limited.  Reservations will close when capacity is reached. CitizenDetroit is made possible through Wayne State University and the generosity of The Eugene & Marcia Applebaum Family Foundation and The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
