Work The Problem

The latest math and reading test scores for 4th and 8th graders were predictably low. Quite low, and trending that way before the pandemic, but exacerbated by Covid-19 and the attendant upheaval.

Before the finger-pointing has a chance to fester, I hope educators can sidestep the blame game and address ways to make up for lost time, which happened through no one’s fault—left or right, red or blue. It’s best we remember that we were dealing with A PANDEMIC, uncharted territory for everybody.

Let’s leave it at that and commit to finding ways to reverse the trends.
