Blogging with Bedden
Nearly three years ago, I sat in my office as the new superintendent of Richmond Public Schools with members of the Office of Communications & Media Relations for my first interview. As I discussed my personal and professional journey, I recall being asked to elaborate on why I believe education is the civil rights issue of our time. Reflecting on a recent article by the Washington Post on the racial and economic segregation of Virginia’s public schools, I think back to my response then and why my belief still holds true today.
Richmond Public Schools has relocated the Department of Student and Family Services and its supporting offices as part its ongoing effort to provide students and families with more cohesive and comprehensive service offerings.
As it begins developing its budget for fiscal year 2018, Richmond Public Schools (RPS) is providing multiple opportunities for the community to share its input.
