Economic Policy Institute: Broader, Bolder, Better with Elaine Weiss
May 23, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
In Broader, Bolder, Better, Elaine Weiss of the Broader, Bolder Approach to Education campaign and former Massachusetts education secretary Paul Reville make a compelling case for a fundamental change in the way we view education. The book builds upon nine years of research by the Broader, Bolder Approach to Education, a national initiative endorsed by more than 60 policy experts and leaders from across the country. It draws on case studies of effective integrated student support efforts in twelve diverse communities to illustrate the variety of strategies that can be adopted locally.
Join Weiss and others for a discussion of Broader, Bolder, Better and the need for a large-scale expansion of community-school partnerships in order to provide student supports from cradle to career.
