Forum Friday: Back-to-School Challenges and Opportunities

By Jeffrey Schmidt

For the September 2021 installment of our virtual event series, Forum Friday, we focused on the array of issues facing Wisconsin school districts as students return to the classroom after the unprecedented events of the last 18 months.

Helping us explore these and other back-to-school issues were our Forum Friday guests: Dr. Keith Posley, Superintendent, Milwaukee Public Schools, Kim Kaukl, executive director of the Wisconsin Rural Schools Alliance, Dan Rossmiller director of government relations of the Wisconsin Association of School Boards, and Terri Phillips, executive director of the Southeast Wisconsin Schools Alliance.

Watch the discussion here:

During Forum Fridays, we discuss a timely research topic and invite notable guests and Forum members to join the conversation. This doesn’t replace our in-person events such as our Viewpoint Luncheons or Policy in a Pub, which are on hold for now during the current crisis. But, we hope this can be a new way to keep you informed and connected on our state’s most pressing public policy issues. Stay tuned for more Forum Friday events in the near future!
