Join youth from nearby schools as they bring knowledge of their experience, studied in relation to policy, local institutions, and community history, to the City Club. Along with students and faculty from Cleveland State University (CSU), Cleveland educators and community members, the youth will discuss issues relevant to their schools and communities. Topics studied by youth researchers include the opportunities and constraints of K-8 schools, school closure, and the 9th grade experience. A particular focus will be to report back key themes from a 9th grade survey, reflecting the work of the collaborative.
