ICRC Releases Education Roundtable Findings

The success of any individual school district clearly correlates with the level of engagement by local community stakeholders, including private and public sector organizations. Maintaining a continuous and intellectually honest dialogue with these partners is critical to ensuring that best practices are identified and followed, that local leaders and activists are provided a forum through which to share feedback, and outside-the-box problem solving exists to address the growing challenges facing schools.

On April 29, 2011, the Indiana Civil Rights Commission facilitated this dialouge through an Education Roundtable as part of the Navigating the Changing Landscape in Housing, Education and Employment conference at the Genesis Convention Center in Gary, Indiana.
