How the Education System and Establishment Have Been Disrupted by the Coronavirus

Discussing when schools should reopen, how the status quo has been disrupted, and the latest attacks on homeschooling.

In this episode of the Random Assignment podcast, Bob Bowdon and I discuss the latest attacks on homeschooling, union pushback against reopening schools, and the New York City Department of Education’s new video featuring Greta Thunberg. We also discuss an incident caught on video of a school employee telling students that she hopes they get the coronavirus and that they “both die a long painful death.” 

We also share our thoughts on federal school choice, the nation’s latest testing results on civics, geography, and U.S. history, and new evidence on the negative effects of Common Core.

Corey A. DeAngelis is the director of school choice at Reason Foundation.
