Learning Unbound: Connecting K12 to the Real World

The challenges of the past 2 years and a rapidly changing economy have validated one incontrovertible fact: it is no longer possible to prepare students for success solely within the confines of the walls of the K-12 classroom. This panel will explore why we must (and how we can) transcend the boundaries of the classroom and community to connect students, particularly low-income students, to real-world learning opportunities that enrich academic learning while developing vital social capital.
