A Red Circle

Education


Discussing Missouri’s new dyslexia law 1-4-19

A Red Circle’s education work focuses on equitable school funding, improving discipline practices to children in grades pre-k through 5, and increasing parental involvement.  We recently expanded our Education Advocacy Coalition to include community partners in the Hazelwood, Ferguson-Florissant, Normandy, Jennings, and Riverview Gardens school districts.  We hope that by building this coalition, we will strengthen our collective impact for North County’s students.  Areas of concern include, but are not limited to:

  • academic achievement
  • discipline practices
  • education policy
  • school funding
  • extracurricular activities
  • parental involvement
  • social and emotional learning
  • restorative justice practices
  • trauma informed care
  • racial equity.
