Description

Parents and policymakers are understandably concerned about the safety of children in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic. These fears have led to the decision in almost every state and county, to close in person public schools for the fall 2020 school year. This decision leaves one option for the children of America, to switch to an online learning format. Along with many of you, I am concerned about the harmful effects extended school closures will have on young children, especially those who come from a disadvantaged background. I suggest that we look at the coronavirus crisis as a moment of great opportunity. A chance for us to get creative with our education system, and make it better than it ever was before. The time to reimagine a school system that is equal for all students is now.
