North Carolina’s public schools have now been closed for two weeks due to the Coronavirus outbreak, and Gov. Cooper announced that they will continue to be closed until at least May 15.
Given these unprecedented circumstances, we are continuing our series on the coronavirus this week. Today, we’ll hear from three of our state’s education leaders who will discuss the impacts on educators and students as well as what schools, districts, and policymakers are doing to reach all of our students during this time of uncertainty.
We at Education Matters are practicing social distancing so, as you can see, we’re filming in a new format today and our interviews will be conducted virtually.
