Challenges & Opportunities for Missouri's Schools
Speaker: Dr. Chris L. Nicastro, Missouri Commissioner of Education
Public education in Missouri has been at the forefront of the news. Last school year, students from two unaccredited districts chose to transfer, under the law, to other districts. Normandy School District faced financial crisis as a result. This school year, Normandy is operating as a state oversight district, with a board appointed by the State Board of Education.
With funding and scores at the heart of the recent stories, we've asked the Commissioner of Education, Chris Nicastro to help us understand the ins and outs of these school stories and their consequences for Missouri public school students.
Come to hear the Missouri Commissioner share information and insights into the future of public education in Missouri.
