Two CMSD students are among nine, including a survivor of the Parkland, Fla., school shootings, who will participate in a panel discussion Friday at a national urban schools conference in Baltimore.
The discussion, from 2:30-4 p.m., will be part of a national Town Hall Meeting being held during the Council of the Great City Schools' annual fall conference. The town hall will focus on on civic engagement, voting, social justice and equity, guns, immigration and other student concerns.
CMSD participants include senior Bishop Crosby, a student leader at the Martin Luther King Jr. Campus, and Lily Kwiatkowski, a Cleveland School of Science and Medicine senior who is involved in environmental protection issues.
The Council of the Great City Schools, which met last fall in Cleveland, represents 70 of the nation's largest school systems and serves as a voice for urban education. The conference is expected to draw more than 1,000 school leaders from across the country.
