Description

Event Overview

TNTP recently published The Opportunity Myth: What Students Can Show Us About How School Is Letting Them Down—and How to Fix It. This report provides education stakeholders with a unique opportunity to understand what goals students are setting for themselves, what kind of lives they want to lead, and how school is preparing them to live those lives—or letting them down.

TNTP, LEAP Innovations and A Better Chicago invite local educational leaders, system leaders, school leaders, funders and policymakers to an engaging event with an opportunity to:

  • Immerse themselves in the findings of the national report. Participants will have an opportunity to engage in an interactive experience, listen to a presentation on the findings, as well as participate in small group discussions.

  • Learn about relevant resources and supports available within our local region to support their trajectory to their reimagined schools and address the major recommendations of the National Report.

  • Plan potential next steps for this important work. Participants will have an opportunity to move from exploration to action planning as they are provided with an opportunity to think about their next steps and share their commitments for moving to action.
