Zoned - Kansas City Policy Breakfast

Event Details: 

Would we tolerate a world that assigned your child a doctor based on your zip code? Then why do we tolerate a world that does that for something just as important as their doctor: their education?

This Kansas City Policy breakfast features a screening of the new short film "Zoned," which explores a world where medical options are determined the same way education is determined for millions of children, by zip code.

The short screening will be followed by a discussion on education policy and school choice.
