Education

Saturday morning at 8am on WCLK's The Local Take I speak with Brandon Fleming founder of the Harvard Debate Council Diversity Project.  I speak with Fleming and two students from his program Keith Harris of Westlake High School and Trinity Franklin of Mays High School.  The students share how being participants in the Harvard Debate Council Diversity Project has open their eyes and desire.  Both speak about being not only leaders but world changers and this belief came from the program.

The Local Take this week speaks with Kelli Bacote Ross about the BOOK organization (Better Outcomes for Our Kids) and their grassroots efforts to reform our education system. Ms. Ross mentions that there are 4 educational tracks - traditional public schools, public charter schools, home schooling and public virtual schools. She speaks about parents who feel that they do not have a voice or a choice.  She also mentions that many parents don't know what "high performing school" really means.

Saturday, October 1 at 7:00 a.m on The Local Take on  Jazz 91.9 WCLK, I'll speak with Kelli Bacote about BOOK, an Atlanta based non-profit organization that works for Better Outcomes for Our Kids.   Ms. Bacote shares how the organization came to be and the activities that they present allowing parents to learn about educational opportunities.
