You are invited to a one-day virtual conference that brings together leading researchers, educators, and policymakers to provide evidence-based guidance for the role that schools can play as the primary social institution responsible for influencing the well-being of children and youth during this national crisis. Attention to the role of schools in stemming the coming rise in educational inequality will be threaded through from the opening to the closing session. Visit the website for agenda and to RSVP.
