Suburban Schools: The New Multicultural Learning Environment?

Sept. 29, 2009

Parents Advocating for Cultural Equality & Educational Excellence (PACE3) presents Suburban Schools: The New Multicultural Learning Environment? on Thursday, October 1 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Whitefish Bay High School Cafeteria.

The event includes a light supper and is free and open to the public.
