This week: "Learning in Lockdown: How COVID-19 Exacerbates the Educational Challenges of the Juvenile Justice and Child Welfare Systems" Covid-19 has created novel educational challenges to school systems and students around the country, and especially exasperated longstanding problems in education for youth involved in the juvenile justice and child welfare systems.

Moderated by Nadia Mozaffar, Esq., Senior Attorney, Juvenile Law Center with Kristina Moon, Esq., Staff Attorney, Education Law Center; Anthony Simpson, Alumnus, Youth Fostering Change, Juvenile Law Center; and Diane Smith Howard, Esq., Managing Attorney for Criminal and Juvenile Justice, National Disability Rights Network.
