Mini-episode: Ways Education Leaders Can Plan to Reopen Schools with Mike Magee

In this mini-episode of Grow Kinder (at Home), Andrea and Mia discuss what school might look like for kids once classrooms reopen in the fall. They also introduce two guest hosts for this special episode: Colleen Oliver, CEO of Committee for Children, and Jordan Posamentier, director of policy and advocacy at Committee for Children. Colleen and Jordan interview Mike Magee, CEO of Chiefs for Change, a nonprofit bringing the CEOs of our nation’s state departments of education and city school districts together to influence the future of learning in America. A cofounder and former CEO of Rhode Island Mayoral Academies, Mike has a long history of building statewide networks of regional, diverse-by-design public charter schools and has advocated for dramatic changes to state education policy. Mike discusses how superintendents across the nation responded to the COVID-19 pandemic; a brand-new report that provides education leaders with recommendations to prepare for reopening schools this fall; and the role social-emotional learning will play as students transition back to the classroom.
