Morgan County R-II School District Superintendent, Dr. Joyce Ryerson, Participates in Discussion Panel - "180 Days: Hartsville" Premiere
Journey inside two South Carolina elementary schools, and see how one small town is making significant strides in educating students. The Peabody Award-winning PBS documentary, “180 Days: Hartsville,” premieres tonight on KMOS TV 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. The film highlights the roles of two elementary school principals and the district superintendent, Dr. Edward Ingram, and the critical leadership roles that are needed to determine resources and focus for the schools.
“180 Days: Hartsville” also follows one family and the struggles of a working single mother and her fifth-grade son. The program challenges viewers to consider, is Hartsville a rarity, or does its successes point towards some universally applicable solutions in education? Can education and community leadership really change the fortunes of a generation by not letting its youngest children fall through the cracks?
After the broadcast there will be live panel discussion in the KMOS studio, 9:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m. The panel, which includes our very own superintendent, Dr. Joyce Ryerson, explores in more detail the vision for mid-Missouri schools, and how the state’s rural school districts can learn from the Hartsville experience. It also looks at recent developments in statewide public policy and education issues that need to come together to transform education in this state.
