This session is about: Emergency Mismanagment - The State's Role in Detroit's Public Education

Join us this semester as we aim to make sense of how we arrived at today's dynamic education landscape in Detroit.  In previous Speaker's Series we have dabbled in the arena of education, but this time we'll take a deeper dive. Together we will examine everything from the purpose of learning, to the meaning of "public" schooling, to the historic impact of segregation and racism on educational equity in this region, to the most recent period of "emergency mismanagement" by the state of Michigan, to much, much more! 

Every Thursday evening session is held from 7:30-9:30pm at the Cass Corridor Commons (4605 Cass Avenue). 

This is a community classroom - everyone is welcome! Free and always preceded by a light dinner.
