Right now, the world faces something practically unimaginable — a global pandemic — and its impacts are being felt right here in North Carolina. The coronavirus is affecting not only our health and business sectors, but it’s also impacting our youth. From online learning, to mental health and food access, schools and families are feeling the effects of the virus and finding ways to adjust to this new reality. This week on Education Matters we want to provide information on this developing situation and what it means for our education community.
