Resetting the Table: Building an Educational Ecosystem to Fuel Growth in Cleveland's Economy

Join us virtually on Friday, June 24 for "Resetting the Table: Building an Educational Ecosystem to Fuel Growth in Cleveland's Economy."

Recent government mandates to slow the spread of COVID-19 illuminated racial disparities in Cuyahoga County schools. According to the urban agenda, "Resetting the Table," minority students were more likely to attend under-resourced schools lacking the access to and familiarity with technology that made remote learning possible. "The digital divide is partly a reflection of an educational funding divide. Racial disparities that are seen as early as preschool persist long after high school.”

While many initiatives have been launched to address inequities, progress in Cleveland has been slow. Please join PolicyBridge and CSU's Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs as we examine educational attainment and career-launching within our region and examine the opportunities afforded through collective impact.

This is our second discussion in a year-long forum based on the recent urban agenda, "Resetting the Table," which xplores the core question: why have so many low-income neighborhoods in Cleveland and its first-ring communities not seen a significant improvement in their quality of life and access to economic opportunity given many efforts to address inequality over the years?
