Live and Learn: Neighborhoods, Education and Transformation

January 24, 2017 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Village Presbyterian Church
6641 Mission Rd
Prairie Village, KS 66208

Thank you for attending Live and Learn: Neighborhoods, Education and Transformation, in partnership with KCUR 89.3.  Event photos can be viewed on Facebook and the conversation can be found below:

Many things outside the classroom affect students’ chances of success and schools have little or no control over many of these conditions. On January 24, 2017, a panel of education and community leaders will discuss the factors that impact the ability of schools to provide a quality education and what schools and the community can and should be doing to improve the chances for student success.

Mayor Sly James, Kansas City, Missouri

Dr. Kristin Droege, Founding Executive Director, Citizens of the World Kansas City

Dr. Jim L. Hinson, Superintendent, Shawnee Mission School District

Dr. Mark Bedell, Superintendent, Kansas City Public Schools
