- The COVID-19 pandemic has created

00:05

or kind of exacerbated inequality

00:07

that already exists in education

00:09

and really in American society and reflects that.

00:12

The first decision about whether schools should open or not.

00:15

We worry that if schools don't open

00:18

and kids don't come to schools,

00:19

then the most vulnerable children will fall behind,

00:22

because we know that disadvantaged children tend

00:24

to fall behind during summer vacation, for example.

00:27

On the other hand, we also worry that if we open schools,

00:30

our most vulnerable populations might be more affected

00:34

by the increase in COVID-19 in the community.

00:37

So I think however we do it,

00:39

we always have to keep equity at the forefront of our minds,

00:42

because otherwise, it's just going

00:44

to exacerbate the inequalities that already exists.

00:46

So I think the question is,

00:48

how is this going to affect communities?

00:50

We know for example,

00:52

that black families tend to be more likely

00:55

to prefer remote learning

00:57

or choose remote learning than white families.

00:59

They might be more likely to be an intergenerational family

01:02

with worries about transmission

01:04

with Asian and Latino families kind of in the middle.

01:07

But perhaps the class issues in terms of smaller learning spaces

01:11

are more likely to have certain health conditions in the family

01:14

that make it especially worrisome

01:16

if someone does contract COVID-19.

01:18

COVID-19 has affected black communities

01:21

and much more than white communities.

01:22

But if that's the case,

01:24

then if they're more likely to choose remote learning,

01:27

then how do we make remote learning robust

01:29

and make sure that it addresses the needs of those communities

01:32

just as much as the in person learning does.

01:34

And I think that's the real challenge

01:36

is maintaining our focus on equity,

01:39

even when we're like we're just trying to get by,

01:41

and everybody's working incredibly hard.

01:44

But we've got to have that equity focus at front and centre

01:47

because we know that this is going to affect equity.

01:50

So, if that means having small group sessions

01:53

with the most vulnerable learners

01:55

on a particular day of the week,

01:56

then that needs to happen

01:58

or thinking about what resources families need to be successful.

02:02

First, do they have enough food to eat?

02:04

Do they have an internet connectivity?

02:05

How can we help connect them to legal services

02:08

if there is an issue with legal status or housing?

02:12

You need to think of your children

02:13

but also be thinking right beyond your child

02:15

in order to push to helping meet the needs

02:17

of other families as well.
