Roughly half of children enrolled in United States' public schools today come from low-income families, which presents a large achievement gap between them and their affluent peers.
The documentary film Oyler explores how one deeply poor school in Cincinnati becomes a community haven, by providing services such as healthcare and social services.
Similar programs already exist in other cities around the United States, including here in Baltimore.
The screening is free and open to the public, so please invite others. There will be a Q&A with key figures from the movie and education policy leaders immediately afterward.
