Board of Education Public Discussion regarding Civility

Monday, April 15, 2019

On March 13th at Ellington High School approximately twenty residents, students, school and town officials met to discuss the meaning of civility. As a precursor to their conversations, participants watched a Ted Talk Ted given by Teresa Bejan entitled “Is civility a sham?” The group recognizes that small conversations will led to larger conversations that are honest, transparent and courageous. The event was covered by Jackie Nappo from the Journal Inquirer. The groups work will eventually focus on “During the aftermath of a national or local tragedy, how may we collectively capture the community’s human spirit to support one another?” Yet, it is important to note that understanding and living civility is a concept applicable to a much broader context. The group will continue the discussion in the coming weeks. • Tuesday, March 26th (5:30 p.m.) at Ellington High School library • Monday, April 15th (5:30 p.m.) at Ellington High School library I hope that you are able to join
