[Webinar Series] The Path Back to School

July 2020

THE PATH BACK TO SCHOOL IS A MONTHLY SERIES OF WEBINARS, CO-HOSTED BY AMERICAN ENTERPRISE INSTITUTE (AEI), BELLWETHER EDUCATION PARTNERS, THE PEPPERDINE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF PUBLIC POLICY AND THE LINE.

Each episode brings together a different set of education practitioners and thought leaders to provide diverse perspectives and ideas on the issues and opportunities facing the K-12 community in this uncertain time.

The goal of The Path Back to School webinar series is to find common ground, as well as a path forward, as we consider what a return to school looks like and the contributing factors at the federal, state and district level. We are committed to discussion and discovery that ensures K-12 organizational readiness to support every student in the fall, regardless of the operational challenges we face.
