MINDING MINNESOTA’S EDUCATION GAP
Why our education gap is becoming worse, and how we move forward.
June 30, 2020 | 1:00 – 2:00PM
Most Minnesotans are aware that our state ranks at the very bottom nationally in terms of education equity and performance. Prior to Covid-19, zip code, income, and ethnicity already played a significant role in determining where students landed in the existing achievement gap. This disadvantage has only been exacerbated with the introduction of distance learning, required home technology, and dependence on a strong support system at home. Covid-19 protocols, in more ways than one, are geared towards privileged middle- and upper-class families.
Join us for a webinar with Dr. Nicole Baker Fulgham, President of the Expectations Project, as she sheds light on the pre-existing education gap in Minnesota, and how the pandemic has multiplied this issue. Dr. Baker Fulgham will address the ways in which we can ensure best practices are put in place to mitigate current and future damage in our school systems.
We will have time for Q & A.
