As this calendar year comes to a close, we'd just like to say thank you to all of the volunteers who help keep PHNEE running. From our steering committee to our focus groups, the all volunteer work keeps us inspired, because we know there is work to be done, and now is the time to do it.  If you'd like to get involved, please email us (or just reply to this email) and we'll get you connected.  
Final "We PHNEE'd To Talk" of the Year
We've had a series of great conversations this year, alternating between the Park Hill and Pauline Robinson branches of the library. For the last event of this year, we'd like to discuss what we can do, as a community, to improve our Park Hill schools. What are some steps we can take now, given the current environment, to increase equity at all of our schools. We'll look briefly at what the district is doing (and not doing), and talk about what levers we have to affect change by either going through the district or going around.

Please join us at Pauline Robinson and bring a friend. We begin with sign in and refreshments at 10:00 and conclude around noon. We hope to see you then!
 
PHNEE Co-Chair, Andrew Lefkowits, produces and co-hosts a podcast with an organization based in LA called IntegratedSchool.org.  It features conversations with parents, authors, teachers, public figures about race, parenting, segregation, and inequities in our schools.  Subscribe on iTunes, or wherever you get your podcasts. 
What we're reading:
  • An article from The 74 Million about the power of family engagement in schools. 
  • An article from the Washington Post about the allure of "miracle" schools, and how they often disappoint.
  • A short video from IntegratedSchools.org mapping how white and/or privileged families tend to interact with schools, especially around integration.  
  • An interactive tool to examine the relationship between neighborhood and school segregation.
  • A letter from East High Principal, John Youngquist, about the qualities our next superintendent should have.  Note - this was written before Susan Cordova was named as the only finalist, but still has a powerful message.
