Indianapolis Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Eugene White will be in the audience tonight for the Indianapolis premiere of a controversial film about the state of public education in our country.
An article in today’s Indianapolis Star quotes White:”I think people need to know that we are in trouble,” he said, “that we have a serious problem with educating our young people.”
While White and many others don’t think the movie proposes a cure-all solution, the film does draw much-needed attention to the shameful state of our nation’s public educational system. MCCOY is working to help find solutions through initiatives that coordinate early intervention and prevention services for children and families and dropout prevention initiatives to help young people graduate from high school ready to build a successful life.
