EVENT III

Education &

Youth Empowerment

June 20, 2020 at 5:00pm PST

The burden upon teachers has never been greater. With longer hours, lower pay, and higher bills, teachers work tirelessly for their students in a system that devalues their labor and expertise.

On June 20 at 8:00pm EST, PICplays presents three short plays via Zoom that explore parents’ unending demands for a teacher to mount fully-produced musicals under quarantine, to the accidental chaos of educating students from the confines of a personal computer, to ending with the real systemic issue of standardized tests and wealth inequality

GUEST SPEAKER

Deborah Meier

The evening will conclude with a lecture and Q&A by Macarthur “genius” grant award winner Deborah Meier, who will discuss her lifework and passion for the democratization of schools.
