Let's Talk | Bridging the Divide: JCPS and Diversity-What Worked, What Didn't, and What's Next?

As JCPS discusses possible changes to the Student Assignment Plan, we look back at a school system that’s been celebrated and criticized for its plan. Our conversation centers on a way forward with diversity, choice, and access to ensure success for all students. From integration, forced busing, racial guidelines, court challenges, and now new proposals from Superintendent Dr. Marty Pollio, we talk about it all with questions from the audience.

Panelists: Dr. Marty Pollio, JCPS Superintendent • Debbie Wesslund, Former JCPS School Board Member (2007-2014) • Raoul Cunningham, President, Louisville Branch of the NAACP

Moderators: Andy Treinen & Rachel Platt

Special Guests in the Audience: Tracy E. K’Meyer, Author, From Brown to Meredith • Mandy McLaren, Education Reporter, Courier Journal
