April 27, 2016 -- CH-UH Superintendent Dr. Talisa Dixon will be one of the featured speakers at the Heights Community Congress "Educational Redlining: Affecting Our Communities" event on Friday, April 29.
The event will run from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at the Lee Road branch of the CH-UH Library. This event is free and all are welcome to attend.
The Heights Community Congress and the South Euclid Lyndhurst Experience Project will lead the presentation and solutions-oriented discussion of educational redlining. Home sales websites use this technique to steer homebuyers away from moderate-income communities by rating their school districts poorly, based on faulty metrics.
The evening begins with remarks from CH-UH Superintendent Dr. Talisa Dixon, South Euclid Housing Manager Sally Martin, and HCC Fair Housing Director Ruby Appling. Small group discussions will follow, exploring ways to combat the ratings and shining a light on the assets of these communities.
Walk-ins are welcome, but reservations are appreciated
to help HCC plan more carefully.
