2/26: A Kojo Roadshow on School Diversity in Montgomery County

By Margaret Barthel

The school system in Montgomery County, Maryland, is one of the nation’s largest, and its schools are among the top performing. But like many jurisdictions in the Washington region, as Montgomery County grows — and as its student population becomes more and more diverse — its schools face a series of challenges: overcrowding, a persistent racial and socioeconomic achievement gap, and sticky questions about redrawing school boundaries.

Join WAMU 88.5’s Kojo Nnamdi for a town hall-style discussion about what local educators, students, parents and community members–including you–think about school diversity and the achievement gap in Montgomery County Public Schools.  

This event is part of a series marking The Kojo Nnamdi Shows 20th anniversary. Learn more about the Kojo 20 event series here.

When: February 26, 6-8 p.m.; recording will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m.

Where: Silver Spring Civic Building (1 Veterans Pl, Silver Spring, MD 20910)

Register for the event here.

Please note: Registration is strongly recommended. Walk-ins will not be guaranteed a seat. 

An edited recording of the event will air on WAMU 88.5 FM later in the week.
