A Conversation with Students: Reimagining Education
September 16 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm EDTFREE
Education “as usual” needs to change. The COVID-19 pandemic and heightened social injustices have illuminated longstanding opportunity gaps in schools. What does a system that meets the needs of all of our students look and feel like?
MAEC’s Reflecting, Reimagining, and Reforming Education series brings together students, teachers, families, administrators, and content experts to answer that question. Join us as we tackle topics from mental health and culturally responsive family engagement to data practices and shifting relationships with technology.
PART I: STUDENT VOICE
COVID-19 has shaken up the American educational landscape, with unprecedented school closures and a national experiment with remote learning. In April 2020, the Center for Education Equity (CEE) spoke with young people across the country to learn about the ways the pandemic affected their lives and their education. As many students now return to in-person learning, we want to hear how their experiences during the past year and a half have shaped their vision of what school could look like. MAEC’s Dr. Daryl Williams and Mr. Sadiq Ali of MENTOR Maryland|DC will facilitate a conversation with a diverse group of middle school, high school, and college students centered around this idea: let’s reflect on and reimagine schools.
