Recovery to Reinvention Series: Funding Students, Not Systems

This continues the Walton Family Foundation-sponsored series, designed in partnership with PIE Network and Bellwether Education Partners. The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored that students and families have complex educational needs that require a range of solutions and learning environments—there is no one-size-fits-all and students benefit when families are empowered to make the best decisions for their children. This discussion will highlight ways that stimulus and recovery dollars can be used to drive new ways of learning and shift power to families, students, and communities. Kickstarters for this discussion include: Derrell Bradford (50CAN), Emily Anne Gullickson (A for Arizona), Luke Ragland (Ready Colorado), Nina Rees (National Alliance for Public Charter Schools), and moderator Chris Stewart (Brightbeam).
