The Future of the Classroom

After a year of experimenting with remote schooling, school systems across the country are met with a chance to rethink their operations as they reopen. We’ll explore how schools are prioritizing good health, technology, housing, transportation, and social services amid the demand to educate, first and foremost. Given that schools will be tasked with embedding technology into learning programs without exacerbating preexisting disparities and providing equitable access to all students, this session will explore new ideas for leveraging investments (federal and otherwise) that ensure the nation’s children are well prepared to enter the future workforce.
