Virtually No Child Left Behind: The Dismantling of Public Education
- This session has passed.
February 17, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 2:45 pm EST
Breakout session attendance is reserved for W&J students, faculty and staff only. Session links can be found on MyW&J.
This session will discuss current issues surrounding public school education systems and the rights of students to receive free and appropriate education and the ways in which both federal and local governments fund and direct K-12 curriculums and resources, standardized testing, and special education programming. Speakers will examine how the pandemic has caused a further wide-spread divide in the way students are receiving education across the United States, the future impact this will have on students academically and emotionally, and who should have the power and responsibility to make these educational decisions.
Presented by D. Ryan Bunting, Instructor, W&J Department of Education and Marissa Capuzzi-Schimizzi, Assistant Professor, W&J Department of Education
