Districts’ varying responses to the coronavirus pandemic is showing, yet again, how a multitude of disparities in terms of funding, staffing, and support play out for students, a new Education Week survey shows.
“The survey results definitely mirror some of the other things we see. These are definitely unprecedented times and what bears out in the survey is that the challenges are impacting vulnerable students and families more than others,” said Elisha Smith Arrillaga, the executive director of the Education Trust-West, a nonprofit that advocates for disadvantaged students and students of color.
