Imagine a school system where thousands of historically marginalized families work to combat injustices like lack of quality, accountability, and choice in their community. P.S. 305 is working to build a movement centered around information, action, and empowerment that drives toward a north star of educational excellence. P.S. 305 moves families beyond simple engagement in their child's education, and instead develops leadership through community organizing.
By 2020, we hope to build a diverse network of thousands of families organized into a federation across Miami-Dade County, working to win on education issue campaigns. Each win will lead to a tangible shift in the status quo, with increasingly informed and active leaders pushing for larger and larger changes, and ultimately better schools for students to attend. This will create a system of excellent schools for every child, and get us toward our vision of every child in Miami receiving a high quality education.
What does the future of education look like in Miami-Dade? Our team has a bold vision, informed by hundreds of community conversations and years of work in the field.
Join us as we unveil that vision at a special event to celebrate a year in advocacy—and look toward a brighter tomorrow for all kids in our county. Together, we'll enjoy some tasty treats from Lulu's Ice Cream and talk about the future of public education in Miami-Dade! Lulu's has sweetened the deal by offering to donate 5% of all purchases toward supporting our work to train parents and teachers in education policy and advocacy.
