Like so many families and children around the world, Canadians are facing the 2021-22 school year with a mix of relief and anxiety, hoping for a return to routines, extracurriculars and relationships at school. But after 18 months of profound disruption – will “normal” be good enough? Are we on track to set all children up for success in a world that often seems more uncertain – and unequal – than ever before? This presentation will begin by examining how Canadian schools have fared during COVID-19 compared to those in other jurisdictions. I then turn to evidence-based ways that educators can ensure a better, stronger, and more equitable start in 2021-22.

Guest Speaker:

Kelly Gallagher-Mackay is an Assistant Professor of Law and Society at Wilfrid Laurier University. She has been working with school boards to understand the impact of COVID-19 on learning in Ontario and was lead author on the COVID-19 Scientific Advisory Table Brief on Emerging Evidence on Impacts of Education Disruption in Ontario. Past roles include Research Director at the Future Skills Centre and at People for Education, and Northern Director of Akitsiraq Law school in Nunavut. She has two kids in public school.

This program is part of the Laurier EdTalks series and is presented in partnership with the Wilfrid Laurier University Faculty of Education.

Registrants will receive an e-mail 24 hours before the start of the program with an invitation to join.
