Join the School of Public Policy's Education Policy & Impact initiative and The Line (a publication of Frontline Education) for a discussion on complex issues in K-12 education. Panelists with a diverse and at times divergent set of perspectives will discuss the central question: Can we improve outcomes in our education systems for all students? 

Webinar 2

Led by moderator, Derrell Bradford (EVP, 50CAN), panelists will also take a look at what progress has been made since the height of recent racial tensions and what steps we can take to move towards greater equality in our nation's schools.
