What do the midterm election results mean for education equity? In January, newly sworn in elected officials—from state boards of education to state superintendents to governors—will be looking to leave their mark on K-12.

Our guests from the Education Week newsroom will take an in-depth look at how the midterms could shift the equity landscape. Based on several years of EdWeek Research Center surveys, the guests will also delve into how educators are feeling about some of K-12’s most critical equity issues.

Joining host Peter DeWitt will be Assistant Managing Editor Stephen Sawchuk, politics and policy reporter Libby Stanford, and the EdWeek Research Center director Holly Kurtz.
