Per national public education non-profit Bellwether Education Partners, as many as 3 million American students have not attended school, online or in-person, since March of 2020. “Beyond even the devastating health and economic consequences of the pandemic lies a critical, long-term cost in education, particularly for the most educationally marginalized students,” said Deborah Marcus, CAA Foundation executive and former CEO of drop-out prevention organization Communities in Schools, Los Angeles. “Many students who lack access to connected devices and other educational materials, due to low family income, homelessness, foster care, disability, insufficient English language skills, or other circumstances, are being left behind. Working with leading educators and experts, our event is designed to create a shared understanding of the issue and provide tangible, immediate action steps to help mitigate the problem before any other long-term damage is done to families and our nation.” Featured event speakers and appearances, among others, will include: U.S. Secretary of Education, Miguel Cardona Former U.S. Secretary of Education and Managing Partner, Emerson Collective, Arne Duncan Former U.S. Secretary of Education and Education Trust CEO, Dr. John B.
