LTL Ep. 5: COVID-19 Hit Schools Like a Tsunami — Where are we now and What’s Next? (ft. Mike Magee)

School closures have students spending the majority of their time in vastly different home situations, and schools are struggling to adapt. 

Mike Magee is the CEO of Chiefs for Change, and he has been in constant contact with district and state leaders from around the country since the start of the COVID-19 crisis. He and his organization recently published a report about the different ways districts and states have responded to the pandemic and what it will take to get schools up and running next school year. 

The conversation is surprising, inspiring — and sometimes upsetting.
