Upcoming FedTalks

Education in a Post-COVID Era

August 25, 2021

Noon - 1:30 PM EDT

Education plays an important role in the expansion of economic inclusion and opportunity as noted in President Loretta Mester’s Reflection on Education. The COVID-19 pandemic changed the scene of education, impacting student achievement with new gaps and intensifying existing issues. What have we learned from the impact of COVID-19 on students and educators and what do we expect this year? How can communities address educational gaps?

Join the Cleveland Fed as we convene a discussion with area experts about education in a post-COVID era. An audience Q&A session will follow.

Introduction: Margie Wright-McGowan, Executive Vice President for People, Culture, Communications & Engagement, Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland
