We would like to welcome you to the 100 Black Men of America/EdChoice Virtual Education Town Hall. This town hall is designed to have some dialogue around what we can do as a collective to improve education and how can we ensure our next generations are prepared for their future. We’ve brought together an esteemed group of panelists to provide their thoughts/insights on issues affecting our current state of education, but also to provide us guidance on how to work collectively to ensure our black and brown students have the support and resources they need from our educational systems.
We’re opening our town hall with a session entitled “Adapting to the Pandemic: Reimagining K–12 Education to Address the Needs of Black Students & Parents.” We know the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to light many significant gaps and inequities within our education ecosystem. As schools shifted to online learning environments, families were forced to adapt and find resources to ensure their students continued receiving a quality education. However, we know many families endured and are still enduring significant hurdles in adapting to this new normal. Moderator, Chris Stewart, will lead our panelists (Curtis Valentine, Sekou Biddle, Dr. Kathaleena Monds, and Dr. Tremayne Clardy) in a discussion of families’ differing experiences through these turbulent times and how the K–12 system can address and support the needs of Black students and families.
