After 18 months of mostly remote learning, last fall nearly all high school students in Boston returned to the classroom in person. But the public health crisis and the economic dislocation are continuing to take a toll. High levels of trauma, exacerbated mental health challenges, and increased incidences of violence in our schools call for a response.

Join us for a conversation with candid perspectives from students, teachers, school leaders, and district leaders.
