Educators! Today, Wednesday, April 22, at 7pm, NEA Vice President, Becky Pringle will serve as a speaker during an important conversation focusing on how educators, parents, and students can respond and strengthen public education in this moment.
This important virtual town hall is hosted by the NAACP and BET and is part of a series of discussions that explore how the coronavirus pandemic is impacting the Black community. I invite you to join in. The conversation will be focusing on how educators, parents, and students can safeguard education.
You won’t want to miss this conversation on the pandemic and education featuring Marc Lamont Hill, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and Congresswoman Maxine Waters. RSVP here to tune in: https://bit.ly/34RrYVE
COVID-19 has radically changed how our educators are teaching, and how millions of students are learning. Physical buildings have been shut down, and many colleges and universities have halted campus operations.
This new normal disproportionately impacts the Black community and other communities of color. We must keep fighting to ensure equitable access to the quality education our students deserve.
So while Congress considers action to support students, educators, and graduates, this is a moment to finally and drastically change our antiquated and unequal education system.
What should be done, exactly? How can we best ease the burden of student debt? What needs to change in K-12 education? How can we alleviate the harm of the pandemic on our public schools? We’ll be seeking answers to these questions on Wednesday.
Take a moment to RSVP for “Unmasked: A Covid-19 Virtual Town Hall on Safeguarding Education.”
I look forward to having you (virtually) there on Wednesday.
