COVID-19 has illuminated many areas of inequity in our educational system. Not every student has had the same access online. Not every family has had the resources or time needed to support students in remote and hybrid learning. We are still learning how deep these impacts are on students. And the mental health impacts of the pandemic are significant for students, caregivers, and educators.
Yet we also have an opportunity to have critical conversations and develop solutions together.
Join us on October 7, 2021 for a statewide virtual FREE convening around supporting students impacted by COVID. First, we will hear from former U.S. Education Secretary Dr. John B. King, Jr., President of The Education Trust, and Dr. Vin Gupta, Public Health Physician, Professor, Health Policy Expert and regular health policy analyst for NBC News, MSNBC, and contributor to the New York Times and CNN, exploring the academic and mental health impacts on students during the pandemic.
Then, join us as we break into groups to discuss how we can support students across Washington state moving forward.
Spanish interpretation and closed captioning in English will be available.
