COVID-19’s Painful—and Essential—Lessons for America’s Schools
Margaret Spellings, The Wall Street Journal
As the nation contemplates its post-pandemic future, it's vital that Americans come together at the local, state, and national levels to reform and rebuild our education system, writes former Education Secretary Margaret Spellings in this op-ed.
Spellings calls on school districts to work more closely with employers, community colleges, and others to create degrees and programs that help students fill high-skill jobs. She also encourages institutions to treat education and training as a lifelong pursuit, forging multiple entry points into degree programs.
