The Coalition for Community hosts regular online webinars to provide the field with tools and resources to aid community school initiatives. These webinars provide in-depth analysis from school and community leaders from around the country.
Community Schools and Equity:
Bringing Community and Opportunity into the Heart of Education Reform
Join us for a series of webinars to explore how to utilize the full-service community school approach, both in policy and in practice, to close the equity and opportunity gaps for all children. As the complexion of America’s children changes and poverty persists as an influence on children’s education, community schools offer an educational, developmental, and community change strategy to empower all children, youth, and families to realize their full potential.
Community Schools and Equity: An Introduction
January 28th at 3PM ET
Presenters will discuss the national context of inequity in public education and present the community school strategy as a viable solution for closing the opportunity and achievement gaps. What are the implications of current demographic shifts for our public school system? What does educational inequity look like at the national level? What opportunities and supports do all children need for success in school, career, and beyond? How does a community school leverage community assets to address these challenges, and more?
