JOHN MERROW is coming to Yellow Springs and the Miami Valley region. Events are being sponsored by Miami Valley-wide educational organizations and foundations. John Merrow is the revered PBS award-winning education correspondent and celebrated author. The public is invited to meet him and hear his views on public education and his recommendations for improvements to all public schools. There is no cost.

This is a wonderful opportunity to listen to and interact with an education author who has seen it from all angles for decades. Among other things, Mr. Merrow is a outspoken proponent of “embracing teachers” and only “measuring what matters.” Diane Ravitch’s blog states, “It is a wise set of lessons that will inform parents, educators and policy makers about the challenges facing American education.” Date: Feb. 28, 4–6 p.m.; 3:30 p.m. sign in and refreshments. 4–6 p.m. presentation and Q & A. Place: Greene ESC, 360 E. Enon Rd., Morgan Building, next to Yellow Springs High School.
