Next Virtual Meeting:
Wednesday, December 15 @ 7:30pm
This month we’ll continue to listen to episodes from SCHOOLED:
The class of 2020: Three students come of age as pandemic meets racial reckoning
Education lost and found: Lessons of the COVID year of schooling in the Philly area
The 2020-2021 year had us all seeking ways to connect with other BHS families & staff so the PTA set aside fundraising goals and made building community a main focus. The Podcast of the Month discussions about School Colors were not only a chance to dig deeper into big issues affecting our children’s schools, but they also gave us an opportunity to put faces with names; to get to know about each other’s lives and to discuss how issues raised in the podcast related to each one of us; to listen and to learn.
The results from our Konstella survey are in!
Schooled, Season 1, Ep. 01: A Fighter Since Birth
What does it really mean to get a good education? What is educational success? The third season of WHYY’s Schooled podcast explores these questions and more through the stories of very different students fighting to escape poverty in Philadelphia.
