    3:00pm to 4:00pm

    Location:

    As we look ahead to a post-pandemic world, with educational disparities laid bare by COVID-19, the Harvard Graduate School of Education ends its Centennial year by asking: What will education look like five years from now? What about 25 years from now? What are the innovations — fueled by the pandemic’s necessities, or powered by the world’s push for racial justice and equal access — that will take us forward? What should we do now to work toward that future we want to build? And what factors, both positive and challenging, will help to determine that future?
