End: Monday, May 11, 2020• 9:00 PM • Eastern Daylight Time (US & Canada) (GMT-04:00)
Join us for a town hall to discuss the Vermont State Colleges and Public Education. Why we go wrong when we don't talk about them together. Let's talk about funding, structure of schools, impact on the economy, the union and why it is essential that we keep our schools open.
We can't both talk about the demographic crisis and eliminate opportunities in our state for young people. We can't worry about rural economy and then create hardship in those same economies. It is time for us to talk about education as a whole and funding it that way too. Join Brenda along with students, faculty and more to discuss the challenges we face and how we stand firmly with our schools.
