This week on our Advocate Virtual Forum, we discuss the upcoming school year as our commonwealth continues to navigate a pandemic, socioemotional needs, and different learning needs with education leaders from across the state. Thank you to our panelists: Penny Christian, immediate Past President of the 16th District PTA and Vice President of Leadership Outreach for the Kentucky PTA; Dr. Jim Flynn, Executive Director of the Kentucky Association of School Superintendents; and Brent McKim, President of the Jefferson County Teachers Association.

This is part two of our education series — listen to the part one episode featuring Lt. Governor Coleman and KDE Commissioner Glass, which aired July 29th.
