The Education Summit

The Education Summit

Access to a good job and opportunities starts in high school. But the pandemic has altered the course for many students, and exposed substantial gaps in receiving a quality education.

As schools navigate returning to in-person instruction amid the pandemic, could this be a pivotal moment to begin repairing America’s fractured education system? And how can high schools and institutions of higher education adapt to the new normal—and improve access to a meaningful education—while preparing students for the future and finding out which path makes the most sense for them?

The Atlantic will gather high-school and higher-education leaders to explore how to better equip all students with the skills needed for success in this new landscape.
