In the past year, school districts everywhere have faced an unparalleled educational emergency. The pandemic put a spotlight on challenges long faced by schools and forced school leaders to adapt in rapid and sweeping ways. On March 2, join Marquette University Law School’s Lubar Center and the Marquette University College of Education for a virtual conference, involving two conversations that will explore the challenges and opportunities within K-12 education.
The first session will draw on the Center on Reinventing Public Education at the University of Washington, which has been closely monitoring and analyzing schooling trends nationwide. The center’s director, Robin Lake, will share with Alan Borsuk, senior fellow in law and public policy, what researchers have observed.
Then four Milwaukee education leaders will describe what has happened for their schools and what they have learned. Mike Gousha, distinguished fellow in law and public policy, will moderate a panel with Matthew Joynt, superintendent of the Mequon-Thiensville School District; Jennifer Lopez, CEO of Carmen Schools of Science and Technology; Keith Posley, superintendent of Milwaukee Public Schools; and James Sebert, superintendent of the School District of Waukesha.
The event will last 75–90 minutes. Not able to watch at 12:15 p.m., no worries it will be a watch on demand program, visit the website at your convenience to watch. Please feel free to forward to others that may find this program of interest.
We miss seeing everyone and look forward to welcoming you back to the Lubar Center at Marquette Law School for in-person events when that is possible. Until then, we plan to continue producing online programming to help keep important discussions moving forward in our community.
