Nov. 14 Discussion About Public Education

Monday, November 14
6:30–8:30 p.m. 

Senn High School
5900 N. Glenwood Ave.
How should public schools change alongside the neighborhoods they serve?
In this free, interactive program, we’ll talk about how demographic shifts impact both the content and quality of public education – asking if all students in schools with diverse student bodies are receiving the same quality of education.
Join us for a program about demographic change in Chicago public schools, modeled after a school day. Simone Ispa-Landa(Northwestern University) will be joined by Alden Loury (Metropolitan Planning Council), the Fighting Youth Shouting out for Humanity (FYSH) student group, and a student from Kelly High School in this interactive program to discuss demographic change at Senn High School. 
Finally, participants will gather for a school assembly where everyone will have a chance to share their voice and discuss the future of education in Chicago - complete with a presentation from Senn's digital journalism program.

THIS EVENT IS A PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN ILLINOIS HUMANITIES, BENDING THE ARC: THE ROBERT HOWARD ANNUAL SYMPOSIUM, AND CROSSROADS FUND.
         
CONTINUING ED. is a yearlong, statewide series working with parents, schools, and communities in Chicago, Decatur, Elgin, and Jackson County to move the conversation about public education back to parents. All Chicago events will be moderated by Laura Washington (Chicago Sun-Times). For the complete schedule and more information, see www.ILhumanities.org/education.
