Distinguished Lecture: COVID-19 Didn’t Break the Public School System. It Simply Exposed the Problems that Already Existed

March 22, 2021 from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


The pandemic saw many parents re-evaluating their children’s education. As neighborhood schools stayed shut and forced online education, parents looked for additional opportunities with charter, private, homeschooling, and even pod schooling options. Did the pandemic forever change public education in America? What did COVID-19 expose about public education? What can we do to improve educational options for America’s families? Join Dr. Corey DeAngelis, Director of School Choice at the Reason Foundation, to discuss COVID-19 and our public school system.
