Public Schools Week

By Learning Forward
April 2023

As part of Public Schools Week 2023, Betty Wilson-McSwain, president of Learning Forward Mississippi, participated as a panelist in a webinar titled The Language of Connection to Build Community Relationships.

In a discussion with Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, Wilson-McSwain highlighted the importance of leaning into data and articulating hope to craft stories of impact to help lawmakers understand what’s needed to help students excel.

Also as part of Public Schools Week, Learning Forward CEO Frederick Brown shared his insight about why public schools are most successful when all educators are well-supported and engaged in ongoing professional learning.

Public Schools Week is connected to a larger #HerefortheKids initiative encompassing the voices of parents, teachers, community and school leaders, and policymakers committed to equipping schools to meet the diverse needs of all learners and ensuring each and every child has access to excellent teaching.
