On Wednesday, the Wilmington History Society will host a free after-work gathering featuring Ron Russo, former principal of St. Mark’s High School and the founding principal of the Charter School of Wilmington.
The topic is a hot one: Education reform and the creation of a city-based school system.
Wilmington is one of the largest cities — if not the largest city — in the U.S. that does not have its own public school system. Instead, the community is split among school districts, leaving the city unable to make education decisions.
(This is noticeable in the lack of education discussion in the Wilmington 2028 plan.)
Russo will discuss the loss of community, the social problems it causes and what it would take to establish a City of Wilmington public school district.
The discussion will take place at the Chelsea Tavern Basement Bar from 6:30 — 7:30, following a 6:00 Happy Hour. Hang around after the discussion for networking and drinks.-30-
