In the midst of COVID-19, the pervasiveness of racial inequities have become more pronounced. How do schools respond at this moment? What are the ramifications for this generation of students? In this talk, UCI alumnus and UCLA Professor Tyrone Howard will unpack some of the stark realities faced by students, families, and schools in this current moment, and discuss ways that education policy, practice and research can offer a formidable response.
