Topping the list of greatest challenges and opportunities here in the KC metro? Education.

This breakout session is designed to offer helpful insights from a few key educators who are leading “on-the-ground”. These panelists will share front-line perspective, offering both practical and strategic ways that we can seek the common good of our city… starting with one local school.
