Here’s a quote of the day, from Saturday’s New York Times:
“The school closures… may prove to be the most damaging disruption in the history of American education. It also set student progress in math and reading back by two decades and widened the achievement gap that separates poor and wealthy children.”
Maybe we should sue the Times for plagiarism – although there may be a statute of limitations since we warned of this THREE YEARS AGO and then showed the evidence over and over. Nice to see them finally come around to reality, but will anyone at the NYT be fired for being the chief media cheerleader for school closures? There was no apology we could see in the article.
