Public education is a social justice issue. Students from the poorest Districts have been hit the hardest by the state budget cuts – and children of color are disproportionately represented among the poor. In Southwest Pennsylvania, this means that African American students are often among those experiencing the worst fallout of this budget crisis.
To learn more about the connection between social justice and public education, come hear Dr. John Jackson, President of the Schott Foundation for Public Education in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He will be the keynote speaker at the 28th annual Martin Luther King celebration and Kelso Lecture in honor of Dr. King TODAY, January 15th. Hosted by Temple Sinai, 5505 Forbes Ave. in Squirrel Hill. Co-hosts are the Religious Society of Friends and Pentecostal Temple Church of God in Christ. Music at 3:30, service at 4PM.
