Community Schools: An Empowering Idea for Low and Moderate Income Communities or a Trojan Horse for Corporate School Reform?

Please join host Dr. James Avington Miller Jr. on The War Report on Public Education radio show as he leads a very timely discussion on Community Schools.

Joining Dr. Miller will be a panel of distinguished expert educators: Dr. Mark Naison, Dr. Nancy Bailey, Jamaal Bowman, and Dr. Ruth Powers. Also joining us on the show will be parent-activist Aggie Kurzyna who will be discussing her run for a local Board of Education position in New Britain Connecticut.

Things we will be discussing include:
- What community schools are and are not.
- The history of community schools.
- What they were meant to be and what they have become?
- Who supports them and why?
- What they can and should be - a vision of hope.
- Why do the corporate-elite want their hands on them?
