Ed Talks are small group discussions between community members focused on a topic related to public education in Hamilton County. Facilitated by UnifiEd organizers, this series is meant to be an exchange of thoughts and perspectives about what’s important to our community regarding our schools. There are two types of EdTalks: “Coffee + Conversation” and “Beer + Babble.” First cup of coffee or beer is on us!

These meet-ups are scheduled throughout the county at a variety of days of the week, times, and venues, so check back to see when new conversations are posted that fit your schedule. The topic for August through November will be educational equity and the Action Plan for Educational Excellence (or APEX) Project. Come share with other community members and the UnifiEd team about your experiences with inequities across the Hamilton County school system, and discuss your ideas for solutions to this problem. 

Your experiences and opinions shared during EdTalks will drive the creation of the APEX policy platform to be released in early 2018. Your voice will be joined with thousands of others to define the problems of equity in our schools and develop a community-driven solution. Come share your voice and be part of the solution for creating a brilliant future for all students in Hamilton County!
