“The Education Revolution: How Families Can Navigate the School Journey in Times of Rapid Change”
The Rizzi Center at Oak Meadow School
Education is undergoing a period of remarkable evolution and transformation. Never in history have families had such a diverse and expanding range of options for their students’ learning experience. With this evolution comes a range of challenges, particularly for parents and students navigating this changing landscape: new skills and knowledge required for future jobs, many of which do not exist today; shifting models of post-secondary education and college admissions standards; and dramatically falling indicators of student health and well-being.
Since 2012, Grant Lichtman has visited and worked with nearly 200 private, public and charter schools around America, and published three books and numerous articles on the transformation of K-12 education. He will share insights into how parents and students can navigate the choices they have; what to look for in a school and learning experience that aligns with their own goals and aspirations; how to appropriately engage with, influence, and support the learning environment; and how to make school more of a joyous journey, and less a fearful trial. Come hear from Grant, and meet AISNE* member schools at this complimentary evening program!
