The Collaborative for Building After-School Systems (CBASS) will host a Twitter chat today, January 24, 2 PM to 3 PM EST to grapple with those questions and others raised in The Wallace Foundation’s recent report Reimagining the School Day: More Time for Learning. We’ll be on the chat, along with our CBASS partners and other organizations profiled in the report.
Elena Silva, Senior Policy Analyst at Education Sector and co-author of the report, will share her findings and answer questions.
