Educate yourself on Philly schools

School is back in session - so maybe you should take some time to learn more about Philly schools.

Educate yourself on Philly schools


Starting Saturday, Sept. 29 (apologies for filling you in on this one so late, but there are other opportunities), Young Involved Philadelphia presents its Education (un)Conference, a daylong conversation and education session on how to improve educational opportunities in the city.

It's at the Kimmel Center, as is an Oct. 3 Young Involved Philadelphia event called "Philly Education 101: How to Navigate the Philly School System by the Philadelphia Public School Notebook and Great Philly Schools."

It features Kristen Forbriger from GreatPhillySchools (a project of the Philadelphia School Partnership) and Brett Schaeffer from the Philadelphia Public School Notebook.

More info. about both events, including times and how to register, here.
