School board cel­e­brates 100-years with lec­ture se­ries

Maryland Independent - - News -

Travel through time with the Charles County Board of Ed­u­ca­tion in a three-part ed­u­ca­tional lec­ture se­ries ex­plor­ing the his­tory of the Board — and ed­u­ca­tion in Charles County — over the past 100 years.

The board is cel­e­brat­ing its 100-year an­niver­sary and has planned three pre­sen­ta­tions, start­ing with “Ed­u­ca­tion: Then and Now” from 6-9 p.m., Sept. 2 at the Port To­bacco Court­house and One­room School­house. The pre­sen­ta­tion be­gins at 6:15 p.m., fol­lowed by break­out ses­sions in­clud­ing a trip to the Port To­bacco one­room school, dis­cus­sion about the changes in ed­u­ca­tion, a hands-on les­son and more.

Se­gre­ga­tion and de­seg­re­ga­tion will be the fo­cus of the sec­ond 100th an­niver­sar y pre­sen­ta­tion on Fri­day, Sept. 16 and Satur­day, Sept. 17 at the McConchie one-room school lo­cated at the Charles County Fair­grounds. Hear from teach­ers and stu­dents who at­tended se­gre­gated schools or went through de­seg­re­ga­tion — and how it im­pacted them. Sev­eral ses­sions are planned, and a sched­ule will be posted out­side the one-room school dur­ing the fair.

The board will wrap up its ed­u­ca­tional se­ries show­ing how the school sys­tem han­dles dis­as­ters — tor­na­dos, hur­ri­canes and more — with a show at the James E. Rich­mond Science Cen­ter. See the spe­cial pre­sen­ta­tion,
