Dallas Public Schools Week addresses testing, media, students, leaders

dallas public schools weekLeadership DISD has come up with an interesting line-up of events for Dallas Public Schools Week, March 4-8.

First up is a live Q&A with superintendent Mike Miles at Pinkston High School from 5:30-6:30 p.m. The location is interesting because Pinkston is one of the district’s most troubled high schools. Miles has advocated Harlem Children Zone-style innovations in South and West Dallas schools, including Pinkston.

An informal meeting about standardized testing is from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Londoner Pub on Thomas Avenue. That location is interesting too because standardized testing will drive ya to drinkin’.

A panel of education news reporters will give a discussion at the Latino Cultural Center from 7-8:30 p.m. Wednesday.

On Thursday, KERA hosts a student forum moderated by the station’s staffers, from 7-8:30 p.m.

And a “meet the candidates” gathering for school-board hopefuls is from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Friday at the SMU School of Law.
