Panelists Kandace Logan, Manager of Equity and Integration, Minneapolis Public Schools and Andrea Jenkins, Minneapolis City Council Vice President, 8th Ward, joined moderator Kym Simmons, a Field School parent, to offer their perspectives on how to increase equity and inclusion in our neighborhood schools, and then took questions and comments from the audience.
