National educators tour Kentucky Family Resource and Youth Service Centers

(KFVS/AP) -

National education leaders are taking notice of the impact the Kentucky Family Resource and Youth Service Centers (FRYSC) are making across the commonwealth. 

An impressive list of these leaders visited Kentucky in late September to see first-hand the array of services the FRYSC Program provides by serving as the vital link between classrooms, families, and communities.

Officials from the National Education Association, Center for Popular Democracy, and the Communities in schools organization initiated the trip.

Participants represented a multi- disciplinary group of educational activists as well as teachers, principles and administrators from public school systems across the country.

Doug Jones, manager of FRYSC Region 7, helped organize the trip by choosing sites for tours in both rural and urban areas.
