Nearly all schools in the United States shut down in the spring of 2020. More than a year later, every school district is grappling with reopening plans and confronting systemic problems magnified by the pandemic. The special, Disrupted: How COVID-19 Changed Education, focuses on the underrepresented voices and stories of students and educators on the frontlines of disruption and change in education.
This virtual, LIVE event on Tuesday, May 18, at 7pm, will be
streamed on PBS NewsHour’s YouTube and Facebook and is open to everyone, especially teens, students, educators, families and other general audiences.
Among the program’s major components are LOSS OF LEARNING AND LEARNING SUCCESSES, STUDENT EXPERIENCES, and MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT. Joining will be U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona to speak and take questions from high school students.
