About the discussion

The disruption caused by COVID-19 has been touted as the push that the K-12 world needed to undergo a seismic transformation into a more equitable system. However, to break the muscle memory of a bureaucracy as entrenched as our public education system, school leaders have a tough fight ahead.

Beyond honest conversations about existing gaps, leaders must put together tactical plans to enact meaningful change. Panelists share perspectives on the challenges, opportunities, and actionable steps needed to move the needle in our fight for equitable education for all.
