EP Summer 2020 Wrap-up Report

This summer was unlike most others. Education leaders and school staff had high-stakes work to prepare for the next school year. At the same time as the education sector is navigating the looming budget crisis and a strong potential for learning loss caused by COVID-19, there’s also a racial and social justice reckoning it must act upon. The surge of necessary and complicated work caused by the confluence of two crises — civil rights and public health — will require sustained effort, anti-racist approaches, and a network of passionate people willing to care, act, and challenge each other while questioning and disrupting the status quo.

We were proud to welcome a cohort of EP Summer Fellows in June who were hosted by our partner organizations across the country to help schools and education organizations get ready for a new school year and a dramatically different future of education in light of COVID-19. They join EP’s nationwide network of 4,500+ Alumni who similarly work outside the classroom to enable student and teacher success inside the classroom.
