Education in a Post-COVID Era

After nearly three years of tumult caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and massive disruptions to learning, the education sector stands at a crossroads. With growing achievement and opportunity gaps, deep concerns about mental health, and stark pressures on teachers and education leaders throughout the country, the repercussions of the crisis are evident. But the past three years have also shown surprising innovation, resilience at all levels of the education system, and a renewed commitment to supporting students, families, and educators. Today, there are new opportunities for transformation — with federal COVID relief funding that can make transformative ideas more feasible. The question is: How can we seize the opportunity for reinvention and develop a new vision for equity and success in American education?
