Opportunities for Education Adaptation
Few crises in recent memory have affected the education landscape like the novel coronavirus pandemic. As Georgia shut schools, many families felt helpless as they dealt with uncertainty and inconsistencies in the interim approach. While public K-12 schools will continue as the education home for most Georgia students, a smorgasbord of alternatives is growing increasingly attractive to families.
Moderator: Eric Wearne, Associate Professor, Kennesaw State University; Senior Fellow, Georgia Public Policy Foundation; author, “Little Platoons: Defining Hybrid Home Schools in America,” (upcoming).
