Texarkana, AR — Parents, teachers, administrators, school board members and other education advocates will celebrate the success of Southwest Arkansas’ public schools and discuss students’ needs for the future Thursday, November 30th at 5:30 pm at Trice Elementary (4505 Pinson Drive, Texarkana, AR).
Local members of Arkansans for Quality Education and leaders are working together to plan the education forum. Texarkana Superintendent Dr. Becky Kesler says it will be an important opportunity for the community to learn specific ways Southwest Arkansas School Districts are improving student achievement, and how they can help to ensure successful strategies are implemented statewide.
“There is wide agreement on a set of practice-proven ways to improve our schools,” Kesler says. “As a community, we must stand together to call on our elected officials to focus on these solutions to ensure a brighter future for our students.”
The public is invited and encouraged to attend, and dinner will be served at the event.
Arkansans for Quality Education formed to push for proven, consensus-based education reform at the Capitol. Its members include the Arkansas Association of Educational Administrators, Arkansas Education Association, Arkansas Opportunity to Learn Campaign, Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families, Arkansas School Boards Association, Arkansas Rural Education Association, Arkansas Citizens First Congress, and Rural Community Alliance.
