The NASSP Policy & Advocacy Center’s “State of American Education” session, originally slated for the 2020 National Principals Conference in July, goes virtual for the first time—as a free event. With the effects of COVID-19 felt throughout the nation, the panelists will look at how the pandemic has impacted schools and related issues such as social and emotional learning; trauma-informed care; continued remote learning; grading, assessments, and accountability; and educator shortages. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from a diverse panel of thought leaders in education who will share how this experience may change the education landscape in the future. Additionally, part of the discussion will focus on racial justice and equity in education.
