Tacoma Public Schools will host national education expert Mychal Wynn in two talks on how the community can create a college-bound culture for all local students.
The author and educator will share his message, “It’s All About Strategy: Creating a College-Bound Culture – A Framework for Increasing Student Achievement,” to parents, students and educators from 6-7:30 p.m. Jan. 21 at Baker Middle School, 8001 S. J St., and 6-7:30 p.m. Jan. 22 at Lister Elementary School, 2106 E. 44th St.
The talks are free and open to the public.
Wynn will cover:
• Why fewer than half of all students graduate from high school “college ready.”
• The impact fourth-grade reading levels have on college enrollment.
• The type of home-school partnerships needed to guide students into scholarships and colleges.
• How to engage students at school and at home in ways to increase student achievement.
