School reform advocate Jamie Vollmer visits Racine
The Racine Unified School District invites everyone to hear author, speaker, and consultant Jamie Vollmer when he comes to Case High School Thursday, Jan. 26. Vollmer, a nationally known advocate for school reform, speaks at 6 p.m. in the Case Auditorium located at 7345 Washington Ave. in Racine.
In urging faculty, staff, and students to attend, Interim Director of Enrollment Management DeAnn Possehl said Vollmer's topic is vital to our campus.
"School reform in our local communities is an important issue that has a direct impact on UW-Parkside," Possehl stated.
A former critic of public education, according to his biographical sketch, Vollmer seeks to begin a positive ongoing discussion between educators and the communities they serve to increase student success and improve the quality of life for everyone in Racine. He is the author of the highly acclaimed book "Schools Cannot Do It Alone" and has spent the past 20 years working to halt the erosion of public trust in and build support for public schools.
Vollmer is not a professional educator. His primary goal is to help educators and their allies remove the obstacles to progress and create schools that unfold the full potential of every child.Hear Jamie Vollmer speak Thursday, Jan. 26, at 6 p.m. in the Case High School Auditorium.
