sea.citi Roadmap to Recovery Series
We’re back next week to talk about the education landscape in Seattle — hopefully, we’ll have a clearer picture of what school will look like in the fall.
Public Education When You Can’t Be “In Public” — Thu. July 9, 12:00-12:30pm PT
Join a conversation with Lisa Chick, CEO of Alliance for Education, about how the quick shift to digital learning might play out in how education happens in the future. And how the pandemic has exacerbated inequitable education outcomes for students of color and other marginalized student groups. REGISTER NOW!
