Closing the Achievement Gap

Tue, Dec 5, 7PM PT (Virtual via Zoom)

We treasure all our children and want them to thrive and find their passions, but studies are showing that while many of our girls are getting more confident academically and breaking glass ceilings professionally, many of our boys are losing their focus and falling behind in education and in life.  Don’t miss this very special talk with Richard Reeves, renowned author and scholar, on the challenges boys are facing in school and in the world today and what we can do to help them.
