Buffalo, New York
On September 29, teachers, parents, charter school leaders, former school board members, prospective teachers and prospective parents gathered to talk about the education crisis in Buffalo and across the country.
On the agenda:
"It was an incredible opportunity to hear these stories, and we all realized that there is not a 'silver bullet' answer to this crisis, but with all of us putting our minds together and promising to put our students first, we can improve the school system and close the achievement gap," says Allie, the Meetup organizer.
This group plans to schedule another Meetup in a few weeks.
