It was 175 years ago that Unitarians in New England were deeply involved in the beginnings of public education in the United States. The vision of publicly funded education was to give everyone a chance to live up to their full potential. Has that vision of the role of the public sector remained strong, or has public education become more like the social welfare system, the education of last resort? Khalilah Worley is a graduate of Cleveland Public Schools and has been deeply involved with GCC leaders, including many West Shore members, in their efforts to transform the Cleveland Public Schools.
