Tele-Townhall Responding & Returning to Schools: Parents’ Perspectives on the Summer and Fall
In April and May 2020, the Urban League of Louisiana and The Education Trust released a survey for parents that focused on responding to and coping with education during the time of COVID-19 and the resulting stay at home order.
This education tele-town hall aims to lift up the experiences and concerns of parents captured by the survey and consider the implications of what parents have shared as well as potential actions and steps for schools, education leaders, and community partners.
