Mem­phis, TN

The Nation­al Civil Rights Muse­um in part­ner­ship with the Shel­by Coun­ty Schools, will engage par­ents, advo­cates, and oth­er stake­hold­ers around the aca­d­e­mic pro­gress of K-12 stu­dents in Mem­phis, with par­tic­u­lar focus on the effec­tive­ness of the invest­ments that have been made in school reform over the past six years. The Muse­um will host three edu­ca­tion­al “exhibits” in their Lega­cy Build­ing over the course of the year. 

Each exhibit will high­light stu­dent data and will be accom­pa­nied by pro­gram­ming, includ­ing Town Halls with local and nation­al edu­ca­tion experts, com­mu­ni­ty forums, school vis­its, and round tables. Their goal is to increase the capac­i­ty of stu­dents, fam­i­lies, and com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers to engage the data as the first step in tak­ing local action to improve out­comes for stu­dents.
