Recent polling data and plummeting enrollment in many school districts suggest that more families than ever before are searching for new options to supplement — or even replace — their children’s traditional school experience. But this latent demand has yet to translate into widespread adoption of an “assembled” approach to education — a more flexible set of educational options available to all families, from expanded tutoring programs, to community-based extracurricular programs, to alternative school formats.

In this webinar, you’ll hear a panel of researchers, parent leaders, and advocates break down the challenges and opportunities in this rapidly changing educational landscape. What factors are driving families to search for different educational options? What barriers are they facing? How can leaders learn from — and support — families who’ve found ways to overcome those barriers?
