The pandemic has made stark the glaring worldwide inequities in access to education. Many now-shuttered schools in marginalized communities haven’t been able to provide their students with any meaningful instruction at all. Those in wealthier communities are offering online classes of varying quality. And a growing number of the rich are setting up small private “pods” or mini-schools to ensure their kids get in-person tutoring.
This webinar on Aug. 20 at 10 a.m. Eastern features experts and education journalists to discuss the challenges re-opening schools during a pandemic, as well as the winners and losers of lockdowns when communities lack access to wifi or healthcare.
