With the coronavirus outbreak disrupting nearly every aspect of our work and learning, educators nationwide have been scrambling to provide remote instruction to their students. But what are they and their schools doing to provide children with social and emotional supports during this tough time? And how do their strategies compare across the private, charter, and traditional public school sectors?
In partnership with the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), we will hold a moderated conversation with three outstanding school leaders, all of whom are working hard to attend to their pupils’ (and staff’s) social and emotional needs, while keeping academics moving forward.
We're excited to bring together voices from across school sectors, including: Juan Cabrera, superintendent of the El Paso ISD in Texas—comprising over 59,000 students—since 2013; Eva Moskowitz, founder and CEO of Success Academy Charter Schools, one of the highest-performing charter school networks in the country; and Kathleen Porter-Magee, superintendent of Partnership Schools, a network of seven urban Catholic schools in Harlem and the South Bronx, serving over 2,000 students. Michael Petrilli will moderate the discussion.
