Panel Set to Address Impact of Violence on Education

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- A panel is set for Thursday night to discuss the impact crime has on education.

"Victory Over Violence: Impact of Crime on Education" begins at 7 p.m. at Sturgis Hall at the Clinton School of Public Service in downtown Little Rock.

As violent crime in Little Rock increases, so do the challenges faced by youth in Little Rock’s capital city. What’s happening at home and on the streets has an impact on what happens inside the classroom. In many cases, at-risk students have difficulty staying on track and leave school altogether.

During this panel, we'll explore the challenges crime presents to students and educators and ideas for overcoming those issues.

Panelists include Michael Poore, LRSD Superintendent, Michael Anthony, Principal at JA Fair, Dr. Fitz Hill, former president of Arkansas Baptist College, and State Senator Joyce Elliot, retired educator.

The panel will be moderated by KARK anchor Bob Clausen.

All Clinton School Speaker Series events are free and open to the public. Reserve your seats by emailing or by calling (501) 683-5239.
