Leading the Way, KEA Trains 250 Adair County School Employees in Multi-Cultural Education
Training Entitled “Multi-Cultural Education: Leading to Just Schools” conducted by KEA Educators
More than 250 school employees from Adair County were trained in multi-cultural education last month as part of KEA’s efforts to address the needs of educators and school systems across the Commonwealth. KEA member Melanie Trowel conducted the training; Melanie was KEA’s 2020 Teacher of the Year and is a member of the Fayette County Education Association.
