How do we improve Indianapolis schools and preschools? Afternoons with Amos turned itself into a special two hour Town Hall where listeners could share their views on making both K-12 and preschool better for African-American and all children. The special broadcast was part of the effort by What’s Possible Indy a collaboration wit between the Indianapolis Public Schools and the Mayor’s Office to engage Indianapolis residents to share, franky, their views on three critical questions. What is a Great School and how do we insure a great school for every child? How can we ensure every child has access to a high quality preschool experience? How can we ensure all neighborhoods have equal access to outstanding schools. In studio during the program was IPS Supt. Dr. Eugene White and Deputy mayor for Education Jason Kloth. Also participating United Way CEO Ellen Annala; Karega Rausch, Stand for Children/Indiana; Andrea Neely, UNCF/Indiana; David Harris, CEO The Mind Trust; Mark Russell, Indianapolis Urban League; Carole Craig, Indianapolis NAACP.
