Beyond Learning Loss
Guest Speaker: Colin Seale
The educational impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is unquestionable. But what if we spent less time talking about closing achievement gaps and more time talking about practical strategies and outcomes for shattering achievement ceilings? Join Colin Seale, a lawyer, educator, and the founder of thinkLaw, which helps educators provide students with the tools they need to lead, innovate, and break the things that need to be broken, to examine the dual beliefs that (1) preparing historically overlooked and underestimated children for a world where they often must work twice as hard to get half as far requires a bold “college for all” level of academic preparation and (2) these are the same children who need to be the change we’ve been waiting for. Changes to these systemic inequities could not be more timely for today’s education context.
