Beyond the Basic: Looking at Why We must raise expectations for our children in the education system

2014 14 May
12:00pm - 1:00pm

Please join Kizzy Paris for a discussion at our lunchtime series on the state of our education system for our children.

Based on her experience of being a mom for her 2 kids and her 10 years of experience in providing supports for school aged, marginalized children and their parents, we are inviting you to explore strategies and tools needed to become effective advocates for those struggling in the mainstream learning environments that systemically are not designed for our children (especially the most vulnerable and marginalized) to develop their full potential.

We want more than just "basic" education for our children. 

We also want to explore common trends and practices in our education system that condition students (and parents) into accepting and mirroring the status quo. So that we can develop cases for change that would truly appreciate the gifts of our children.

2nd floor, 251 Bank St.

Free & Bring your lunch!
