Liz WillenDear reader,
 
Here are some pandemic images that truly moved me this week.
 
The masked first-year teacher, delivering goodie bags filled with candy as rewards to her homebound students in Louisville, Kentucky. The fifth longest-serving college president and longest-serving woman, a nun constantly trying to keep her small institution alive amidst seismic higher education changes.
 
These are among the stories we bring you this week, as we dare to look forward to more vaccines and more school openings -- but also more unsettling potential pandemic consequences.
 
They include a fear that low-income high school students are becoming too overwhelmed and frustrated to complete college applications and the possibility that a decline in community college students will lead to a shortage of workers.
 
During these especially fraught times for education, we also love to hear stories from our readers, so please stay in touch.

Liz Willen, Editor

The authors of a new report that draws lessons from the spike in for-profit college enrollment following the Great Recession call for greater scrutiny of for-profit schools, many of which are high-price, low-quality institutions.
