Gubernatorial candidate Danielle Allen and co author of The Path to Zero and Schools: Achieving Pandemic-Resilient Teaching and Learning Spaces policy guidance,  Professor Meira Levinson will gather on Facebook Live for a thirty minute Q&A about best policy practices that Massachusetts can take up as this school year starts to keep students, educators, and school staff safe as the Commonwealth starts its second school year affected by COVID. Both Allen and Levinson have worked with schools on COVID safety practices throughout the pandemic and are considered national experts. 

 

 

Meira Levinson, in collaboration with other colleagues, co-authored The Path to Zero and Schools: Achieving Pandemic-Resilient Teaching and Learning Spaces policy guidance, a New England Journal of Medicine article on Reopening Primary Schools in a Pandemic, and two additional white papers. She is a normative political philosopher who works at the intersection of civic education, youth empowerment, racial justice, and educational ethics. In doing so, she draws upon scholarship from multiple disciplines as well as her eight years of experience teaching in the Atlanta and Boston Public Schools. Since the onslaught of the global novel coronavirus pandemic, Levinson has been focused on expanding educational ethics to address the multitude of ethical challenges posed by school closures, remote schooling, and uncertain reopenings. She has also been leading global teacher discussion groups on the ethical challenges they face.

 

 

Danielle is a mom, policy expert, nonprofit leader, and professor at Harvard University. She has advised policy makers at all levels of government on critical policy decisions. Over the last twenty years, she has led organizations at all scales from local civic education providers to a global philanthropy. Danielle has achieved impact over decades through policy and implementation in the domains of education, justice, health, and democracy. Her leadership is characterized by listening, collaborating, and innovating--as in leading a multi-disciplinary covid response team that led to the Biden-Harris Pandemic Testing Board and an interstate compact to build out COVID testing resources.
