With disease outbreaks flaring in various states, and a shortage of reliable guidance from the federal government, the country is grappling with the challenges of sending children back to school. Families, local leaders, and school-based educators hold much of the burden of balancing trade-offs between in-person and remote learning. They are asking one important question. Can we actually reopen schools safely?
In this special episode of Education Now we will address this pressing question and provide guidance on how educators and families can approach the very tough decisions they have to make. We will be joined by Bridget Long, HGSE Dean, and Ashish Jha, Director of Harvard Global Health Institute and soon-to-be Brown University’s Dean of the School of Public Health.
Education Now: The Challenges of Reopening is a summer webinar series with insights for educators, families, and school and district leaders. This bi-weekly series runs Wednesdays, June 24 through September 2. Episodes will be recorded and available to view later on YouTube and Facebook. Visit hgse.me/ednow for more information.
