Pastor Charles Foster Johnson, director of Texas Children’s Pastorswill be interviewed virtually by school trustee Jennifer Hall Lee as part of the superintendent’s enrollment committee.

Board of Education member Hall Lee leads the Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) Superintendent’s Enrollment Committee, which was convened to recommend strategies for retaining and recruiting students to attend public schools. The committee is part of a larger effort to develop a five-year strategic plan for the district. Assistant Superintendent Elizabeth Blanco, Ed.D., said, We look forward to this important conversation with Pastor Johnson as PUSD engages with our community to define a roadmap for the future of children in our schools. .

Pastors for Texas Children was established in 2013 and they believe in and champion public education. “We are an independent ministry, not beholden to any special interest group, political party or church office.”

Jennifer Hall Lee said:

I first met Pastor Johnson at the 2017 Network for Public Education conference in Oakland. His knowledge of how to encourage participation in public school and his insight into political attacks on public education inspired me. I am honored to interview him!

Pastor Charles Foster Johnson said:

Universal education for all children, provided by the entire public community, is the foundation of American democracy. Believers of all traditions should support it as a key part of God’s common good.

The zoom interview takes place on November 2 at 6:30 p.m. Johnson’s nonprofit has chapters across the country. Religious leaders are encouraged to attend.

This is a free virtual event.
