STAUNTON -- A forum on Tuesday night at Shelburne Middle School in Staunton talked about race and diversity, especially when it comes to kids in school.
The forum talked about how schools can better address the needs of minority students. It stemmed from a forum on race that Staunton councilman Ophie Kier held in August. At that forum, education was a big topic.
Tonight, Staunton's superintendent of schools talked with parents.
"I think that we all believe that education is an opportunity to a successful life," said Superintendent Linda Reviea. "And so it's important that as a school division, as community members, as parents we all know what are those opportunities."
At the forum, Reviea talked about programs the schools offer. Another important topic was the role parents can play in supporting their kids.
