WMCCP presents fourth conversation with exploring public education

GRAND HAVEN, Mich. -- What’s the best thing we can do to enhance the quality of public education? More funding? More equitable funding? More choice in schools? More or less emphasis on testing and outcomes?  What are your ideas?

Join us as we discuss the topic Public Education: How well are we doing” as the West Michigan Civil Conversation (WMCCP) project launches its next conversation on Tuesday, May 15, from 7:00-8:45 p.m. at the Loutit District Library in Program Room A.

All who cares about public education are invited to attend. This is the fourth in a series of eight conversations planned throughout 2012. The local project is designed to provide a place and process for people with wide-ranging views to share perspectives on the important issues of the day. The goal is not to come to consensus, but to promote listening, learning and a balance between inquiry and advocacy.

The project is cosponsored by the Loutit District Library, the League of Women Voters, and the Progressive Women’s Alliance-Lakeshore and has been featured on WZZM, WGVU, and in the regional print media.

A resource table on the main floor of the library offers suggestions on further reading the topic.
