JFN Education Series: Education Challenges of Covid Crisis in Israel's Underprivileged Communities

Tuesday, August 18, 2020, 12:00pm – 1:00pm EDT

Around the globe, school leadership, educators, and parents are looking ahead to the 2020-21 school year. After several months of trial and error in the shadow of the Covid crisis, this upcoming school year will be one of huge opportunity as well as many challenges.

Join us for an open discussion between funders and experts in the field. We will discuss what is currently happening and where the gaps are. We will also hear from funders on the role of philanthropy and collaborations during this pivotal time. 

In the second of this two-part series, Dr. Gil Pereg, CEO of Darca Schools, will showcase how the crisis is impacting underprivileged communities in Israel’s geo-social periphery. Dr. Pereg will share his expertise and discuss how the crisis has affected schools and their leadership. Using Darca’s work in recent months, he will share some of the challenges and opportunities facing the formal education system in the months to come.
