Beyond “Schools In Crisis”: Teachers and Students on Our Present Realities and Collective Possibilities

January 10, 2023 at 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm CST

Invitation to an event hosted by the Anti-Racist Education Collective, the New Haven Federation of Teachers, and Recovery for All Connecticut.

Every day, we hear about the great teacher resignation and shortage, student learning loss, and the many crises facing our schools. Absent from these debates have been the voices of the educators and students at their center, who share a far more nuanced understanding of what is truly taking place within in our schools.
Students and educators understand the problems schools face, and the long-standing conditions that the pandemic built upon and compounded. Their creativity, ideas, and insights are crucial to building a just future for all public schools.

This panel centers the voices of educators and students as we consider:

  • What are the contours of the crises in our schools?
  • How did these conditions precede the pandemic and which aspects are unique to this era?
  • What power can we harness to transform our schools into the ones our students have long deserved?

The event will be held on Zoom with ASL interpretation.
