This Askwith Forum explored the future of cradle-to-career place-based partnerships and featured some of our key partners. Over the past two decades, these collaborative efforts have become a critical and increasingly popular approach to addressing our nation's most pressing socioeconomic and educational challenges. This work intentionally broadens the boundaries of education beyond schooling to include the broader ecosystem of children's lived experience and the supports and opportunities each family needs to restore social mobility in this country. Speakers discussed the potential of the cradle-to-career movement to eliminate intergenerational poverty and strengthen our democracy. Watch the recording here:
