The Heroic Response of Our Teachers
In 1983, the National Commission on Excellence in Education reported in “A Nation at Risk” that America’s public schools were failing. For nearly four decades, this has been the underlying narrative driving the education reform movement in our country. Today, however, thanks to COVID-19 and the shutdown of our public schools, this old narrative is being challenged. The heroic response of our teachers to the current pandemic has established the new narrative that they can be trusted do what is best for our children, their families and our communities.
