Join WJCT and the Jacksonville Public Education Fund for a special evening to talk about the role of teaching in ensuring all children receive a high-quality public education. This event is sponsored by a grant in support of 180 Days: Hartsville, a new documentary filmed in two elementary schools struggling with new curriculum standards and maintaining funding, while meeting the needs of individual students.
“Teaching Transformation” will take you inside the local Quality Education for All Fund, aimed at supporting and retaining great teachers in some of Duval County’s highest-need schools. With teaching quality as the number one factor in student success, this is a crucial conversation that every public education advocate will want to attend.
