WEBINAR: Homeroom with Education Leaders | Reconsidering School Choice in the Wake of COVID-19: The COVID-19 pandemic caused a range of unprecedented monumental shifts to K-12 learning and instruction, including a significant increase in parent and family involvement in their child’s education. One result of this new engagement and awareness is renewed attention on school choice policies and the options families have to customize the education their child receives. Join us for a discussion of how perceptions and policies around school choice have shifted as a result of the pandemic, the short and long-term impacts of these shifts on education at-large, and how educators and policymakers at the state, district, and school levels can provide all parents and families with access to the information, resources, and supports needed to ensure their children are receiving a high-quality education that meets their needs.

WEBINAR: Race & Education | Promoting Diverse School Leader Pathways and Supports: Research affirms meaningful benefits for diversifying school leadership, including reducing stereotyping and unconscious biases and promoting greater acceptance and trust among students, improving interactions with community members that share their racial or ethnic background, and providing a nuanced perspective when developing academic programs targeting students of color. Yet, principal pipelines are not equally accessible for educators of color. Furthermore, as we go into the third year of the pandemic, school principals continue to feel the stress of staffing shortages and concerns about student wellness in their schools, leading to fears of principals leaving the field. What can states and districts do to recruit diverse school leaders, and how can we ensure our school leaders of color feel supported? Join us for a conversation around diversifying school leader pipelines and supports for principals of color.
