The League of Women Voters of Falls Church invites the community to “Open Hearts, Open Classes,” a panel discussion about how foreign crises impact the Falls Church school community, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 14, in the Falls Church Community Center.

The panel will feature Dr. Lois Berlin, superintendent of the Falls Church City Public Schools, Leslie Brant Teixeira, director of the State Department’s Family Liaison Office, Leah Wallace, education and youth officer in the FLO, and a parent and child who were recently forced to evacuate their home in the Middle East. Because there are apartment complexes in the City of Falls Church that foreign service and other families use for transient stays, a crisis overseas, like the events unfolding in the Mideast or in Japan, can have an impact on the local school systems. The forum will explore the challenges that this presents for the school system, the State Department and the individual families involved.

The forum is free and open to the public. For more information, visit lwvfallschurch.org.
