Please join the W. Clement & Jessie V. Stone Foundation and the Forefront Education Group for a breakfast presentation and panel discussion on the University of Chicago Consortium on School Research report: Supporting Social, Emotional, & Academic Development: Research Implications for Educators.

Dr. Elaine Allensworth will highlight the Consortium’s latest report, which suggests concrete ways that educators can translate research into school-based practices that create responsive, engaging schools and classrooms that advance educational equity. 

WTTW’s Brandis Friedman will moderate a discussion with Dr. Allensworth and Chicago education leaders, including LaTanya McDade, Chief Academic Officer of Chicago Public Schools and Desmond Blackburn, CEO of New Teacher Center.
