The Systemic Dangers to our Schools with Dr. Howard Fields

St. Louis Public Schools (SLPS) faces a crisis: plummeting enrollment has caused the district to lose roughly 90,000 students since the 1970s. SLPS has responded to this crisis by closing and consolidating schools. They are not alone – this is happening all over the country.

NCJWSTL is excited to welcome Dr. Howard Fields for our July Lunch and Learn. Dr. Fields is the 2020 National Elementary Distinguished Principal from Missouri. Described as a passionate and courageous leader, Dr. Fields started his career in urban education, serving as a coach, teacher, assistant principal, and principal.

Dr. Fields currently serves in the capacity of Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources in the Kirkwood School District and is the author of the recently released book, “How to Achieve Educational Equity.”
