A national group working on education issue meets today in St. Paul.
The National League of Cities’ Council on Youth, Education and Families is here and will look at out-of-school-time programming. St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman chairs the group.
“We have worked hard to put Saint Paul in the forefront of the national conversation on education, and it is an honor to showcase and share our work with my colleagues from around the country. Education does not start and stop at the school doors, and we’ve demonstrated, through the success of our Second Shift initiative, that anything we can do to engage students is the first step on a path to success for every child in our community,” Coleman said.
Other topics to be considered by the mayors and education leaders from across the country are: youth development, early care, youth safety and family economic success.
