How Can Investors Respond to Inequities in Education?

Audio Description

Fall has been fraught with uncertainty this year, as schools grapple with the best way to meet students’ needs. But the impact has been uneven as fewer low-income students consistently log in for remote instruction. As the pandemic threatens to widen the achievement gap, which already costs the US economy up to $700 billion in lost productivity per year, how can investors respond? Experts from DonorsChoose and the DC Charter School Alliance explore this pressing topic—including inequities in school funding, unconscious bias, and culturally relevant curriculums—along with proven private-sector solutions.
