Resources for Recovery: A Conversation on the Education Landscape

The 2020‒21 school year has begun like no other in the recent history. Millions of students are learning online and the services and supports that schools can offer are limited due to concerns about COVID-19. But learning is happening across the country despite these challenges.

Educators, practitioners and policymakers are invited to join AIR and colleagues from across the country to share stories, challenges, and solutions for serving students and communities this school year.

Attend the next Resources for Recovery: A Conversation on the Education Landscape online event, on October 22, 1-3 p.m. ET. This event will have an interactive format and feature small group conversations around a series of important topics.
