The Role of Parents in Recovering from Learning Loss and Literacy
As the country tries to scale up tutors in a situation where there is a shortage of employees in nearly every field, might there be another strategy that is also more durable?

Alejandro is CEO and founder of Springboard Collaborative, which has historically worked with schools to help engage, involve, and build capacity in parents to help their children become literate. Alejandro will talk about their work—and why parents might be the secret answer lying in plain sight for our nation’s educational challenges, as well as how to bring them into the equation for all children.
