According to Michael Davis, the Beacon Hill Education Committee Co-Chair, “The Beacon Hill Education Committee has been working with members of the community to confront the documented, racial, academic and discipline discrepancies in City Schools of Decatur. Mses. Shum and Torres will share which laws govern the issues Beacon Hill has been addressing and the legal options families have at their disposal.”
There will be time for questions afterward.
