The disruption to in-person and traditional school routines are demanding more from families than ever before, as many try to fill in instructional gaps on top of providing emotional and physical care. Long-standing patterns of excluding and marginalizing families and communities of color from actively engaging in their students’ schooling presents new and even starker threats to their sense of community and trust in schools.

Given these challenges, what can the research evidence tell us about how schools and districts can support families in their diverse contexts and build practical trust to support student learning?

Join Nancy Hill, professor of education at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education, Todd Rogers, professor of public policy at Harvard Kennedy School, Greg White, president and ceo of the LEARN Charter School Network, and Justin Jones, Senior Managing Director of Family engagement at Flamboyan Foundation for a lively discussion moderated by EdWeek’s Christina Samuels. The panel will draw on the evidence in the new EdResearch for Recovery brief, “Engaging Parents and Families to Support the Recovery of Districts and Schools.”

Panelists:

Nancy Hill, Professor of Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education

Todd Rogers, Professor of Public Policy, Harvard Kennedy School

Greg White, President & CEO, LEARN Charter School Network

Justin Jones, Senior Managing Director, Effective Family Engagement, Flamboyan Foundation
