Friday Conversation: Community group looks to change conversation surrounding LSR7 achievement gap

Nick and Jason sit down with Corey McDonald and Ron Freeman, of the Community Solutions Focus Group. The group, believing public conversations surrounding the LS R-7 School District's equity plan have had too much emphasis on race, is looking to change the narrative. This is the first in a series of conversations with and about various community groups looking to influence district decision making.
