Perspectives on Equity Reform: Examining Policies, Curriculum, and Access to Ensure Opportunities for All Students
Across the United States, adequate and equitable educational opportunity is far from a reality for many students of color, students from low-income families, and other historically and systematically excluded students.

Perspectives More than ABCs: Strategies for Supporting the Whole Learner
There is a persistent disconnect between the holistic set of skills and experiences that every student needs and the testing culture our current education system prioritizes. The science of learning and development tells us that learners of all ages need a variety of healthy, engaging learning experiences, experiences that are grounded in strong developmental relationships, safe environments, and that support the growth of a broad set of physical, social, cognitive, creative, and emotional skills.
There’s little doubt that virtual learning will play a prominent role in the future of education. What is less clear is exactly what that role is and the essentials for success. During this event, you will find a vision of quality virtual learning—based on research and input from dozens of experts and practitioners—that focuses on learning and the people vital to it as the keys to success. The result is a framework that should drive the creation and implementation of any virtual learning endeavor.
Perspectives on Durable Skills: Preparing Students for the Future of Work
Preparing students—every student—for the workforce of the future requires schools to equip them with the right skills for the jobs of today and tomorrow. In a skilled workforce, jobs demand that students develop common competencies in K-12 education, enabling a broader group of learners ultimately to find success in their careers and communities. Durable skills are essential regardless of educational attainment level, industry sector, or geography.
In this 30-minute virtual event, we address the challenge of attracting and retaining a stable teaching workforce, especially for rural schools. Join us to learn about teacher recruitment, retention, and ways to inspire your staff (and prospective staff) to build lasting learner relationships. We discuss:
