Webinar with the
American Federation of Teachers (AFT)
In this edWebinar, leaders of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and Brooklyn Laboratory Charter Schools (LAB), in New York City, discuss key questions we must all consider as we begin the journey back to school – from the school bus ride to the dismissal bell.
While some challenges remain outside of the purview of the education system, both the AFT and LAB have described a range of issues to be considered and offered solutions on what schools need to do to offer a safe environment for teaching and learning.
