It has been one year since COVID-19, a once unknown virus that causes illnesses similar to the common cold, ravaged the world. Currently, there have been well-over 520,000 deaths in the United States alone. However, Americans’ health isn’t the only thing that’s been impacted by the devastating virus.
Over the past 12 months, COVID -19 has impacted education adversely but also positively. This panel discussion features local education leaders who will explain the good and bad effects of the pandemic as well as what educating students will look like in the future.
The virtual panel discussion, “One Year Later: COVID’s Impact on Education,” will be 5 p.m. March 22 on Facebook.
