Virtual Event (Radcliffe): Is Now the Time to Build a Better System? K–12 Education and Systemic Racism in the Era of COVID-19
The current coronavirus crisis has illuminated long-standing inequities in US education, conditions that have been well-documented for decades but remained unrecognized by many until now.
Monday, July 13, 2020 @ 11:00AM Pacific Time (2:00PM Eastern Time)
Online Event (details sent after registration)
As public schools and districts plan for the 2020–2021 school year and beyond, should their primary aim be to recover what they have lost, returning to a pre-COVID baseline? Or is now the time to reinvent our public educational systems to establish a new, more equitable baseline? Can and should we attempt such reform during the continuing political, health, and economic crises? If not now, when? This Radcliffe webinar, cosponsored by the Harvard Graduate School of Education, will bring together experts from public school systems, foundations, and academia to explore these questions.
