Child making snow angelAn Associate Professor of Education and Economics at Boston University, Joshua Goodman, joins Education Next Editor-in-chief Marty West to discuss how remote learning during a pandemic affects the snow day calculus.

Goodman’s research on weather-related school closure decisions, “In Defense of Snow Days,” appeared in the Summer 2015 issue of Education Next, and his blog post, “The 2020 Snow Day is Here. It Must Include ‘Sleducation’,” is available now.

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