Zoned - St. Louis Policy Breakfast, Kingside Diner, Tuesday, 22. January 2019

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 St. Louis 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 panel discussion on education policy and school choice featuring local experts on the topic.
