Sense in the City, An Urban Conversation: Equity, Public Schools and Democracy – Feb 9

Posted by Center City Residents Association on February 1, 2022

Join Hugh Taft Morales of the Philadelphia Ethical Society for the second Sense in the City discussion: EQUITY, PUBLIC SCHOOLS and DEMOCRACY.

Date and Time: Wednesday, February 9, 12:00-1:30 PM

Let’s brainstorm about the following challenges to our democracy:

How should we think of the public school system? Are flourishing schools for all fundamental for the future of democracy? How should we approach equity in funding, given that schools in wealthy areas often are better funded and have additional support through extra fundraising programs? What is a fair funding formula? What role do charter schools play in our public dialogue about education? How should schools be structured so that they prepare young people to be engaged citizens?
