Last night, Cumberland Mayor Daniel McKee and Superintendent Phil Thornton joined over 8,000 Rhode Islanders to discuss transforming schools in the Blackstone Valley and across the state of Rhode Island. The town hall focused on how the Mayor & Superintendent are working to provide every child with access to a great public school. During the call, our guests engaged with voters from all over the Ocean State, answered questions and discussed what people can do to help strengthen their communities’ schools. From art programs, charter schools, Common Core State Standards and funding challenges, the town hall covered a wide range of topics affecting students in our state.
For those who missed the town hall, listen here to a recording of the event.
We’d like to thank Mayor McKee, Superintendent Thornton and all of our participants who joined us for a robust and lively discussion of public education in our state!
