On Tuesday, January 28th, President Obama delivered the State of the Union Address, which included several commitments to making positive changes in America’s education system. Join us as we dive deeper into the state of education in our country and the changes that are on the horizon through the programs highlighted in President Obama’s speech. We will discuss what these changes mean for students in low-income communities, early childhood education, and STEM programs. In addition, our expert panelists will also weigh in on Teach For America’s role in education reform as our country moves forward in working towards executing crucial programs and practices that will positively impact students of all backgrounds.
This event is recommended for those with solid knowledge of the mission of Teach For America/the basics of the corps experience and who want to learn more about the state of education in our country and the role that Teach For America will play in moving closer to educational equity for all students.
