Are you the parent of a Montgomery County Public Education student? Join other parents interested in the state of public education for an informal discussion. We will meet in the Community Room at the Centerville Panera on Rt. 48 on Monday, June 16 at 7pm to discuss activism on the local level. How do we support teachers and public education? How can we affect change in public education policy? What kind of presence do we want in our community? What kind of questions do we want to ask at Centerville City Schools’ public education forum on June 19th? Hope to see you there.
