History, Geography and CMS

"MeckEd and Levine Museum of the New South invite you to join a lively and interactive exploration of the historical context behind Charlotte's school issues. We'll learn some school history, focusing of Charlotte's experience as the U.S. test case for court ordered busing. Mostly we'll be looking at patterns of economic separation and racial segregation over time. This Discussion Tour evolved from an orientation that Dr. Gorman asked Levine Museum of the New South to give him when he arrived. He's since sent many administrators and principals on this discussion tour. As Dr. Gorman says, it helps us understand why we don't all seem to be 'coming from the same place.'"
The event will take place Thursday, November 19th, from 8:30a to 2:00p.  For more information, see this link.
