Some Assembly Required: How to Help Families Navigate Learning Options After COVID-19

Some Assembly Required: How to Help Families Navigate Learning Options After COVID-19



Millions of students across the country are still struggling with the academic, social, and emotional toll of the COVID-19 pandemic. Schools will play a critical role in the recovery—but they can’t do it alone; nor should they be families’ only source of educational support. From expanded tutoring programs, to community-based extracurricular programs, to alternative formats like hybrid schools and microschools, families have more options than ever to supplement or even substitute for full-time school. But many lack the information and resources they need to navigate this growing educational ecosystem and advocate for their children’s needs.

In this webinar hosted by Bellwether, panelists discussed how leaders at all levels can help families “assemble” the right educational experiences for their children inside and outside school at this critical moment—and build a system that’s more flexible and responsive to students’ needs.

Panelists included:

Dr. Sonja Santelises, CEO, Baltimore City Public Schools
Selamawit Gebre, Director of Strategic Initiatives and Impact, RESCHOOL
Michael Goldstein, Founder, Match Education
Lakisha Young, Founder & CEO, The Oakland REACH
Andy Rotherham, Co-Founder, Bellwether
Juliet Squire, Senior Partner, Bellwether
