Watch and Talk Party Reflections
Many thanks to the WU students, community educators, the KFLA & KTWU guests, as well as the WU Department of Education faculty and WU Library staff who participated in the Watch and Talk Party! The event was well attended and the conversation led to many rich explorations of various topics relating to the future of education in KS. Notes from conversation were recorded and are available in this document. These ideas will be shared with educational and political stakeholders to help shape the future of KS prek-12 education!
Thank you again!
