The Next Louisville: What is Louisville Doing to Support Public Education?

This week city and education leaders participated in a WFPL hosted forum to discuss what Jefferson County Public Schools system and city are doing to promote student achievement and ways they collaborate and what they need.

We were joined by JCPS District 1 board member Diane Porter, Metro Government policy director Tony Peyton and Dr. Bradley Carpenter with the University of Louisville, who has spent time in low-performing schools and has worked as a principal and teacher among other roles.

This event was the first official public event for The Next Louisville education project. Our next event will be on Tuesday, April 9, when we'll be joined by U of L Grawemeyer Award winner Pasi Sahlberg, who will discuss Finland's education model.
