Every child is unique; however, too often education falls into the “one size fits all” category. In honor of National School Choice Week in January, we’re discussing education policy with one of Detroit’s top experts, Marvin English.
Marvin is the founder of VentureSchool Detroit, a charter public high school scheduled to open in 2018 on the northeast side of Detroit that was created with the primary aim of giving students the opportunity to unleash their entrepreneurial potential while receiving a world-class education.
RSVP to join us for this discussion and evening to meet and network with other young professionals from across Michigan. As always, we will have lots of food and your first drink is on us! Plus: we’re raffling off five free books to attendees to grow your libraries, and we’ll have some School Choice Week swag to give away. We hope to see you there!
