Child sitting on stack of tiresPlease join Bank Street College, Teachers College, and Erikson Institute for a 90-minute special event featuring educators and parents who contributed articles to Bank Street Occasional Paper Series #46, “The Pandemic as a Portal: On Transformative Ruptures and Possible Futures for Education.”

This issue, which was guest-edited by Mariana Souto-Manning, President, Erikson Institute, launched in October to examine how inequities in schooling and education have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and how we can reimagine the potential of our education system in a way that centers equity and enacts justice.

This event will be held via Zoom and will include an audience-participation discussion of the experiences, struggles, successes, and hopes of parents and educators as we enter our third year of schooling amidst the global COVID-19 pandemic. Additional information about the event, including guest speakers, will be available in the coming weeks.
