The COVID Slide and What to Do About It

One of the most important tasks schools face in the recovery is to pinpoint academic gaps students face, and devise strategies to effectively address them. 

This challenge is exacerbated by students’ widely varying experiences in the pandemic. 

Panelists at the Education Writers Association’s 2021 National Seminar discussed key data on the scope of the learning gaps and promising practices to support students.

The participants were:

  • Emma Dorn, McKinsey & Company
  • Angélica Infante-Green, Rhode Island Department of Education
  • Sonja Santelises, Baltimore City Public Schools
  • Chastity Pratt, The Wall Street Journal (Moderator)
