Trust Conversation: Educating All God’s Children
February 7, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 7 at 7:30 PM
All children have God-given potential but many children in our nation’s public schools are not yet realizing that potential. By the time kids in low-income communities are in fourth grade, they’re already three grade levels behind their peers in wealthier communities. More than 50% won’t graduate from high school—and many that do graduate only perform at an 8th grade level. Only one in fourteen will go on to graduate from college. These students have severely diminished opportunities for living life to the full.
However, there is good news: educational inequity can be eliminated. In this presentation education expert, Nicole Fulgham, will delve into the problems that cause educational inequity in the first place and what people of faith can practically do – and are doing already – to help seek justice for all God’s children.
