Roland S. Martin will host a Town Hall discussion to determine if "Is School Choice The Black Choice?" in our communities. This discussion will include supporters and opposers of Charter Schools. Some panelists include Dr. Steve Perry, Principal of Capital Preparatory Magnet School; Dr. Ramona Edelin, former Director, DC Association of Charter Public Schools and Russlyn Ali, former Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights at the U.S. Department of Education. On the other side, the program will feature Hilary Shelton, Washington Bureau - Senior Vice President for Advocacy and Policy; Fred Ingram, Executive Vice President of Florida Education Association and Troy LaRaviere, the former Principal at a number-one rated neighborhood school with the Chicago Public School System.
This is sure to be a passionate discussion about the future of our youth that you don't want to miss. Come prepared with your School Choice questions for this televised event. And you already know I will be sure to #BringTheFunk, so lets go!
