Due to an unforeseen family circumstance, Teree Caldwell-Johnson is unable to be with us February 17. We are grateful and honored to have Interim Superintendent Matt Smith available to speak. 

Public schools continue to be underfunded and targeted by conservatives but, in the midst of all of that, they work diligently to serve all the student needs that come through their doors. Even with that, concerns regarding equity remain for many public school children. How can our communities help to support equity in our public schools? Interim Superintendent Matt Smith of Des Moines Public Schools will address the issues around equity in public education and the role of communities.
