Have you ever wondered what are the real differences between public and private schools? Do you know how charter schools operate? What are the biggest challenges in educating the children of Los Angeles these days?
Join three top educators from Los Angeles as the Lincoln Middle School PTSA hosts a round table discussion to answer these questions and so many more. (Thursday, February 26th, 6:30-8pm @ Lincoln Auditorium, 15th Street and California Avenue in Santa Monica)
Moderated by Lincoln Middle School Principal, Suzanne Webb, we will welcome Sandra Lyon (Superintendent, SMMUSD), Jon Wimbish (Headmaster, Harvard Westlake Middle School), and Sarah Hughes (Chief of Staff, KIPP LA) as they discuss the state of education in and around Los Angeles.
This is a terrific opportunity to see how different institutions try to answer the same questions, like: how do we close the achievement gap, how do we keep all students engaged and challenged, how do we balance the academic and social components of school, what concerns “keep you up at night”…and so much more.
Bring yourself and your own questions for what will be a fascinating discussion of education and your child
