Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, too many students are falling through the cracks of our education system. As we discussed during the recent National Forum on Education Equity, the pandemic has exacerbated challenges we’ve faced for quite some time in every community —including the digital divide, the achievement gap, and the need for school choice.
With so much at stake, we must examine the roots of these issues and explore ways to foster a more inclusive and equitable education system. That’s why I’m proud to announce I am hosting a new podcast series, “What I Want to Know.”
As part of this project, I am having meaningful conversations with renowned leaders in education —including famed educator and futurist Sugata Mitra, noted political scientist and prolific author Dr. Rick Hess, and the ‘godmother of Silicon Valley’ Esther Wojcicki, amongst many others. Each guest provides valuable insight on education trends and practices and shares substantive ways we can move the needle on education.
This week, please join the conversation in 4 simple steps:
1) LISTEN to the first episode.
2) SUBSCRIBE to “What I Want to Know” on Apple PodcastsSpotify, or wherever you stream podcasts (preferably on Apple, so we can make the biggest splash this week!). More episodes will be released every two weeks.
3) RATE the show on your podcast platform of choice.
4) SHARE on social media and join the conversation using #WIWTK.
As always, I thank you for your continued commitment to supporting equity in education and exploring the people and stories behind the headlines of our communities, our schools and the local economic structures built to support us all.
In partnership,
