The past two years have challenged, taxed, and changed our education system like never before. As students and educators enter a third year of living and learning in a pandemic, how can our education system adapt to best support school communities now and in the years to come?
On January 26, we discussed this critical question and more with all three state education commissioners and the Massachusetts Secretary of Education. We also shared the latest data on school and student life amid COVID-19 and released our 2022 Action Guide. This year's report provides recommendations for supporting teachers in navigating the current crisis and providing culturally responsive, innovative, and engaging learning experiences for years to come.
