Automation and artificial intelligence are transforming the economy. In K-12 education, preparation for the future of work has focused on improving career and technical education in high schools, but grades K-8 are also critical for preparing students and families for new opportunities in high school and beyond.

Please join the Center for American Progress for a conversation that will cover multiple perspectives on ways to expand opportunity and build equitable access, including by supporting educators, increasing offerings, and deeply engaging families as early as elementary school. The panelists will also discuss how the current COVID-19 crisis affects the future of work.

This event is part of an online series exploring the five key issue areas that a new public education agenda should include. Each week, experts from across the education field will discuss how educators are adjusting to virtual schooling, the history of the federal government’s role in providing equal access to high-quality and equitable education to all students, preparing students for the future of work, what charter policy could look like in the future that puts equity at the forefront, and the need for greater and more targeted federal investment in education.
