Conversation with the Commonwealth—What Does the Future of Kentucky Education Look Like?
LT. GOVERNOR JACQUELINE COLEMAN HEADLINES BLUE RIBBON PANEL
This virtual event will examine several key focus areas and topics/issues of discussion:
- What does the future of Kentucky education look line, from P-12 through higher education considering the pandemic and post-pandemic considerations?
- Issues in on-line education, the digital divide in Kentucky. How do we create a level playing field? How do we engage students on-line, as if they were in the classroom? How do we keep students motivated and deal with barriers such as procrastination, feelings of isolation, and absence of support? — as well as disengaged teachers and professors.
- Race & Class-socioeconomic issues in education. From Black Lives Matter and minority challenges to socioeconomic class, poverty, household level of education, clothes, food insecurity and more.
- The goal of this Conversation is to envision significant takeaways and strategies that will begin to change the narrative on the importance of all forms of education in Kentucky, and create a better synergy and collaboration between K-12 and higher education — university presidents, superintendents, principals and the business community.
Virtual Event is free and Open to the Public but registration in advance will be required. Please watch your inbox for registration opening information.
University Presidents, K-12 Superintendents, Principals will be able to engage in conversation and questions and answers with panelists.
