5:30 - 7 PM: Detained Children Have a Right to Education
Hosted by Free the Children Coalition

August 30th, Dr. Trujillo reported that the Southwest Key Program recommended that TUSD enroll the 300+ students at the Tucson Facility. He said there were a number of issues that TUSD had to look into, and the next TUSD update would be 9/12. However, this meeting was rescheduled - apparently no one involved in this issue was aware of the change - plus - Southwest Key was apparently not discussed. Hopefully it will be in this meeting. We encourage all interested to attend the October 16 meeting.
Let's pack the house again and let TUSD know that we want those children educated.
