What is New York’s plan to remedy the massive setbacks its school closures and mitigation policies had on its public school students – many of whom were already struggling?
This headline says it all:
Technical Advisory Committee Co-Chair Marianne Perie explained: “Yes, there’s learning loss between 2019 and 2022, but in some ways we don’t want to keep going backwards. We’re at this new normal. So for New York we are saying the new baseline is 2022.”
George W. Bush called this “the soft bigotry of low expectations.” We can only hope that the Education Savings Account revolution eventually reaches even the bluest basket case states like New York.
