LTL Ep. 17: Education Emergency—Why We Must Fund and Measure Everything

Marc Porter Magee and Derrell Bradford of 50CAN, a non-profit and non-partisan education advocacy organization, are convinced that COVID-19 has made education inequality worse — they contend that if we as a nation don’t change course, the damage will be irreversible for an entire generation. They recently put out two policy briefs and authored a piece in USA Today about where we are and what we need to do to stop the bleeding, make our buildings safer and empower families with options by getting funds to them directly.
