Keep Calm and Teach On: Back to School during COVID
Wednesday, August 26, 2020 - 7 PM

Teachers, parents and school administrators face unprecedented challenges this fall trying to educate students in the midst of the pandemic.  Some schools plan to combine digital learning with in-person instruction while others are going all online. How can schools keep students and teachers safe while still providing a quality education?

Joining April in the discussion were: 

  • Jametta Lilly - CEO, Detroit Parent Network
  • Robyne Muray - English and American Literature teacher, Lansing Eastern High School
  • Matinga Ragatz - Education consultant
