Education issues discussion slated for Rockland Public Library
Rockland — Please join in a discussion of local education challenges and view the film, "Waiting for Superman," at Rockland Public Library, Monday, Feb. 3, from 5 to 8 p.m.
The film highlights efforts to help low-income families have more public education options through new public chartered schools. With high demand, a lottery is used to decide fairly who gets in, since families choose to have children attend, rather than their being assigned by home address.
Following the film there will be discussion of critical issues facing the public education system. Free and open to the public.
