Learning From the Past: Why Educating Kids on Race Matters

Sept. 23, 2021
To raise fairer, kinder and smarter kids who are prepared to build a more equitable society, we have to reconsider how history and race are taught in our schools. Don’t miss this critical conversation by Khalil Gibran Muhammad and Jeffery Robinson, two of the nation’s leading scholars on race, inequality and criminal justice.

Raising an Independent Learner: Strategies to Help Kids Help Themselves

Oct. 7, 2021
The learning struggle is real. Trying to support our kids’ education can often end in tears, arguments, exhaustion, threats and bribes. Drawing from their extensive classroom experience, teachers and authors Abby Freireich and Brian Platzer will share their proven secrets to raising an active learner — both in and out of the classroom.

Oct. 27, 2021
Tenacity is more important than ever in preparing kids for the future. In the illuminating talk, Sam Goldstein, Ph.D., and Robert B.
