Parent Town Hall
Miss Black Mississippi USA, 2017, The Fannie Lou Hamer Institute @ COFO and the Institute for Social Justice and Race Relations will host a Parent Town Hall Discussion on Thursday November 10, 2016, at 6:00 p.m.. Recently, the Mississippi Department of Education cited Jackson Public Schools for violating 22 of its 32 accreditation standards, including high school graduates not meeting state standards, numerous fights, late-running buses, unsafe buildings, unqualified teachers and a problem with disciplinary decisions by principals. In Jackson communities, violent crime is at 80 on a scale from 1 to 100. Property crime is at 81. What role can parents and community members play to become change agents for our communities? This Town Hall will be an open event for parents to discuss with Jackson Public School officials, City Administrators, and Law Enforcement how to alleviate the issues of our school districts and communities.
Join us on Thursday, November 10, 2016 at 6:00 pm at The Fannie Lou Hamer Institute @ COFO at 1017 John R. Lynch Street, Jackson, MS 39217.
The evening event is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Refreshments will be served.
