This has been the most challenging school year most of us have ever experienced—from the lack of consistent safety guardrails and guidance, to the dearth of resources, to the pitfalls of hybrid and remote learning.
As part of the AFT’s ongoing commitment to provide information and resources to help educators meet the needs of students during the pandemic, we are inviting you to a follow-up to our Sept. 12 online symposium. Join AFT President Randi Weingarten for continued discussions on the challenges created by COVID.
Available on Demand
We will focus on the latest information about COVID-19 and its transmission in schools, as well as tips from practitioners and other experts on how to ensure students are engaged in deep and meaningful learning — whether it’s in-person, hybrid or distance learning.
