Education, Audience Research & Evaluation
Continuing the work of the inaugural Museums & Schools: LA convening, this special panel will share resources for developing and sustaining impactful, reciprocal museum educational experiences that extend beyond one-time field trips. The session will explore groundbreaking work for early childhood learners and middle and high school students, with examples from Los Angeles, Arizona, and across the nation. Inspiring educators and museum professionals will discuss the diversity, mission, and philosophy of museum-school models and the current national landscape of museum schools. This panel will spark dialogue about the central role that museums can play in increasing equitable access to quality public education and whole child learning.
