Front Porch Gathering to Discuss Education Equity in East Austin, Sept. 19

Front Porch Gathering flyer

Front Porch Gathering flyerThe geographically determined social and economic conditions of K-12 students in Austin, Texas continue to define their education experience. This reality helps explain disparate learning outcomes and disparities in access to resources for students living east of Interstate 35.

The research of Dr. Terrance Green, assistant professor of educational leadership and policy at The University of Texas at Austin, examines the crossroads of urban school reform and socially just community development. His work will inform the September Front Porch Gathering, encouraging an exploration of education equity in Austin and how policy in cities can improve educational outcomes in low-income neighborhoods through school and community asset assessment.

Join residents, community stakeholders and education advocates for an exploration of the current East Austin school assets, community resources, systems and approaches to addressing education equity in Central Texas.

Tuesday, Sept. 19 @ 6:30 p.m. David Chapel Missionary Baptist Church 2211 E Martin Luther King Jr Blvd.

Food will be provided by Taco Deli’cioso’s.
