Service + Solidarity Spotlight: AFSA Hosts Town Hall on Strategies to Reopen Schools

Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we’ll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.

Last week, members of the School Administrators (AFSA) participated in an “Ask Ernie” online town hall with their president, Ernest Logan. The event focused on sharing strategies on the issue of reopening schools. Logan said that safety and the mental health needs of students must be the highest priorities. “This is an opportunity for us to really talk about how we transform and be transformative, and what education looks like in the future,” he explained. “We need to talk about what it is that we need to do for our children, so that we’re able to allow them to be productive citizens going forward that can take part in the real cultural and civic life they should have.”
