Can We Build a “Marshall Plan” for Education?

About this event

Given challenges like political deadlock and increasing inequity, many leading thinkers in education think COVID-19 may represent a historic opportunity for systemwide change. Join us as Johns Hopkins Professor Robert Slavin and other experts consider what it would take to launch a comprehensive, national effort for post-COVID-19 recovery and reform in education.
