EdNext Podcast: An Earthquake Followed by a Tsunami

“One of the things that districts discovered quickly was that many of their teachers didn’t have wi-fi at home.”

The CEO of Chiefs for Change, Mike Magee, joins Education Next Editor-in-chief Marty West to discuss how schools are responding to challenges posed by the novel coronavirus.

“One of our members said to us on a call this past week that this is the earthquake and it’s going to be followed by a tsunami when it comes to district budgets,” Magee says. “Every district in America is going to have to significantly rethink the roles of adults in all of their school buildings.”

The Chiefs for Change report, “Schools and Covid-19: How Districts and State Education Systems are Responding to the Pandemic,” is available now.

The EdNext Podcast is available on iTunes, Google Play, Soundcloud, Stitcher and here every Wednesday.
