Dr. Howard Fuller, National Renowned Black Educational Reformer to Speak at Educational Forum in Louisville
Louisville, KY. – The Black Alliance for Educational Options (BAEO) is sponsoring an educational forum on charter schools and parental choice options for failing black and low income students within Jefferson County Public Schools and throughout Kentucky.
Dr. Howard Fuller, the pioneer education reformer and one of the nations’s most distinguished advocates for providing children from black and low-income families with educational options, will be speaking at the forum, which will be held at Louisville’s Quinn Chapel AME Church, 1901 W. Muhammad Ali, Blvd tonight from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
A few months before his death, the late Pastor Louis Coleman led a group of 14 persons, including six other black Pastors from Louisville, to visit public charter schools in Milwaukee, where they met with BAEO and Dr. Fuller.
Pastor Coleman told his fellow ministers: “Brethren we must bring Dr. Fuller and BAEO to Kentucky.”
In 2011, BAEO Came to Kentucky and now Dr. Fuller is coming.
Dr. Fuller will join others in Frankfort tomorrow morning to testify before the state House Education Committee at 8 a.m.
