Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley will convene the first meeting of the City of Learners Committee at 8 a.m. Wednesday at the University of Dayton River Campus at 1700 S. Patterson Blvd.
Whaley has said improving education in the city will be a priority of her administration.
In the next three months, committee members will hold 12 meetings with parents, students, neighborhood groups, educators and others, to determine how the community can help children be more successful in schools, whether those schools are public, charter or parochial.
After the community discussions conclude, Whaley will announce specific action items that she and the City Commission will push forward with the help of community partners. JEREMY P. KELLEY
