About the Event
School closures have thrust parents into the role of teachers, and made navigating the complexity of school and home that much harder. After weeks together sheltered-in-place, many parents now have a much deeper understanding of their kids—what they struggle with, how they learn, and even who they are and what they care about. Before COVID-19, research consistently showed that parents not only wanted their kids to succeed in college, they also wanted their kids to grow up to be independent, curious and resilient adults. In this session, Prepared Parents Co-founder and Executive Director Mira Browne discusses how two previously separate sectors—schooling and parenting—have merged to create a new normal for both families and educators. We will address what parents want in a post-coronavirus world, and how should schools engage them.
