No Time to Lose: The Promise and Policy Implications of Expanded Learning Time

Join the Wagner Education Policy Studies Association (WEPSA) and a panel of experts as they discuss the various policy implications, funding impacts, and programmatic approaches to extending the day and expanding learning time in and outside of schools. As charter schools, after-school partnerships, and other models increasingly challenge the traditional school day, districts are becoming more innovative in their approaches to time. Philanthropic organizations also play a powerful role in this nonprofit-public-policy dynamic, building the capacity of nonprofits to pursue innovative solutions and raising the bar for impact and results. Representatives from a non-profit after-school program, philanthropy, a policy intermediary, and the Department of Education, among others, will examine this timely issue.
