RISE INDY to host the fourth RISE + SHINE educational event on local school funding

INDIANAPOLIS – RISE INDY, a local nonprofit advancing education justice within Indianapolis schools, will host the fourth event in its community-focused RISE + SHINE series on Saturday, April 23, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at KIPP Legacy High School in Indianapolis.

The session will examine the truth behind K-12 funding, focusing on how money flows from federal, state, and local governments into local schools and classrooms. 

The program will kick off with an overview from a K-12 finance expert explaining how Indiana’s system works, followed by a panel discussion with local educators and school leaders. Attendees will then break into small groups to discuss what they’ve learned. The full speaker lineup will be announced soon. Spanish interpretation will be available for this event. 

“It’s important for the community to understand how education is funded so we can have conversations about the best way to get resources to kids and educators in our classrooms,” said RISE President + CEO Jasmin Shaheed-Young. 

The event is free and open to the public and members of the media.
