About

During the pandemic, we heard so much rhetoric about how COVID’s disruption exposed the broken, inequitable systems that so many accepted as givens in our society. But if we are truly attempting to build towards a more just world and fix what didn’t work, why is there such a focus on returning to the old status quo of our education system?

Young people are continuing to shoulder the multi-year burden of education during the pandemic. We are facing multiple crises: mental health, a lack of qualified teachers in classrooms, and attacks on curricula rooted in the facts of our history.

Fellow Council member Mohan Sivaloganathan, CEO of Our Turn, will lead us in an open conversation with students, education leaders, and policy experts on how we can advance education equity in a post-pandemic world. Join us to learn how leaders can take tangible steps to build a new normal that doesn’t fail the future of America’s students by rooting what’s possible for their education in the inequities of their past.
