Liz WillenDear reader,
 
Arguments. Shouting. Teary outbursts. If any of this sounds familiar, welcome to the sometimes toxic combination of pandemic parenting, schooling and working from home. It’s been a year. And this week, The Hechinger Report takes an intensive look at the stress being trapped at home together has taken on all of us.
 
Over and over, our reporting is showing us how this difficult year has changed education as we know it. Fewer high school students are taking dual enrollment classes, for example. And there are so many other ways we are exploring the new landscape, via our learning from lockdown series.
 
We love hearing from our readers (including students) who are facing other challenges this year as well, such as the need to address anti-Asian racism.  If no one is talking about the problems, no one will bother trying to fix them.

Main Idea 

Parents fighting, teachers crying: Grownup stress is hitting kids hard

Children dealing with their own issues also bear the frustration and fears of the adults closest to them.
Reading List 

Pandemic reduces number of high school students taking dual enrollment courses

The trend could make college cost more and take longer, assuming that students even go.


OPINION: Schools can help us build back better and address climate change

Decarbonizing our schools will lower costs and improve outcomes.


Pre-K may boost math scores even eight years later

Students who attended Georgia’s pre-K program were more likely to meet academic standards on state tests.


OPINION: To destroy white supremacy, interrogate the canon

To demand that our young people learn about global writers, multicultural stories and other nations and see them in their own power is a direct threat to white supremacy.
