Bringing Back the Lost Generation

Mar 6, 2024

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

Learning poverty is estimated to reach up to 70% of ALL global students, generating unprecedented intergenerational inequity. What should be done to re-engage students who have left the education system during the pandemic? As a recovering society, we face the reality of how to bring back a “lost generation” of learners, which requires coordination across sectors. Focusing on the possibility and potential of approaches that have centered non-traditional learners across all segments of the spectrum from preK to grey, our panel will share an array of interventions from practitioners.
