The Education Committee of the People's Agenda held a standing meeting every Monday at 4:00 PM via zoom ahead of when the board was anticipated to vote on the proposed changes to the Student Assignment Plan (originally estimated to be around January 19, 2021). Below are archives of most of those meetings:
3-2022 – League of Women Voters Monthly Racial Justice Meeting.
This month the topic was the JCPS Student Assignment Plan Proposal. Chris Harmer with AROS had an advance copy of the proposal, which he shared with those in attendance. Some people in our coalition seemed alarmed this public meeting was happening, so I recorded it for later viewing, especially for our teachers, who were unable to attend a mid-weekday event on such short notice. Please don’t share this video widely without owner’s permission.

In attendance: Latasha Harrison, Chris Harmer, Tyra Walker, Tia Edison, Greg Tichenor, Matt Kaufmann, Michelle Pennix, Ivonne Rovira, Dorothy Foster, Gay Adelmann, KA Owens, Ike Thacker, and Rebecca Harmon.
Because there was a snag getting the Kentucky Alliance board to trust moving forward with a 501c4 at their last meeting, we voted at this committee meeting to vote on a slate of officers made up of Kentucky Alliance Board members, Black if possible, so the control remained with the same body.
Without the 501c4, we cannot lobby school board members, encourage others to lobby school board members, nor come out with a position on the tax increase, so our coalition would be pointless. It’s a tool the colonizers use, and you never want to go into battle without the same or better weaponry than your opponent.
Our first town hall is Monday, so we need to file before then.
