Emancipatory Education Speaker Series

Emancipatory Education Speaker Series

What should education look like post-COVID? How do we get there?

Many are looking forward to a time when we can go back to “normal” in education; however, that "normal" wasn't working for too many of our children, youth, families and communities. Join us for a series of live, online conversations with nationally recognized speakers and emerging voices who will share their visions for post-COVID education through an emancipatory lens and to identify steps to enact their visions.

This series is open to all at no cost. Live captions will be available.

This speaker series has been sponsored by the SJSU Connie L. Lurie College of Education and Division of Student Affairs.
