Description: Pass or Fail the State of Education; A Student and Educator Crusade for Change
The state of public education will be examined at Lifetree Café.

The program, titled "Pass or Fail? The State of Education," features filmed stories from Nikhil Goyal, TED talk speaker and author of "One Size Does Not Fit All: A Student's Assessment of School ," and Sajan George, the founder of Matchbook Learning, a school-turnaround organization.

"Thirteen years of being in the system annihilated my creative potential," says Goyal, a recent high school graduate. "School stunted my creative prowess. I came to the realization that I was seen not as a human being, but as a test score." He now advocates a number of changes for the educational system.

Participants in the Lifetree program will discuss the current state of public education and what changes might improve the system for schools, parents, and students
Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available. Lifetree Café meets @The Eleanor Kahle Center 1315 Hillcrest Ave in West Toledo from 7-8 pm every Thursday.
