Commission

Following the screening on this Friday, attendees
will be invited to participate in a ONE by ONE
community conversation to share their ideas and
solutions for public education in Duval County.

Several past events have displayed the need for
conversations by teachers and the community:
the Teacher Town Hall at WJCT that focused on
the High School Drop Out Rate, decline in writing
FCAT scores in recent news reports, increased
school discipline challenges, death of a student
 jumping from a school bus and other issues
need to be addressed by the public. ONE BY ONE
is taking these and other important educational
issues “to the street” by engaging the public in
conversations.

Public education and the strength of teachers is
important to the educational success of all students.
These are issues educators and the public should
voice their opinions on and offer suggestions to
ensure all students are safe, receiving equitable and
high quality education.  Parents continue to be
supportive and involved. If you are a graduate of
Raines High School or a concerned and involved
community member, come show your support by
coming to view this historic documentary and
adding your ideas to the discussion afterwards.

There are still great thing happening in our schools,
but parents and community stakeholders must stay
involved. Even if you do not have children that attend
Raines High School your voice, your participation and
your passion for education for all students will be
greatly appreciated.

This effort is supported by the ONE by ONE Campaign

The free event will feature film and conversation about
public schools in Jacksonville, Florida.
