Beating the COVID-19 Education Disruption: Answering YOUR Questions

March 26, 2020 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM EDT

Live Online

Featuring Kerry McDonald, Adjunct scholar, Cato Institute, and author of Unschooled: Raising Curious, Well‐​Educated Children Outside the Conventional Classroom; Jessica Koehler, “Beyond School Walls” columnist for Psychology Today and founder, Koehler Academy; and Brian Ray, President and Founder, National Home Education Research Institute; moderated by Neal McCluskey, Director, Center for Educational Freedom, Cato Institute.

For millions of Americans, this is likely the second week of educating children at home, maybe via online instruction provided by brick‐​and‐​mortar schools, perhaps by running instruction on their own. No doubt many people have experienced difficulties and frustrations with this. To help, we have assembled a panel of homeschooling and education policy experts to provide advice informed by research and years of experience and to answer whatever questions YOU may have. Submit questions on Twitter using #CatoCEF, and start doing so as soon as you read this invitation! Or you can submit your questions during the event using Twitter, Facebook, or the comment feature on the event webpage.
