The amount of instructional time and the breadth and depth of material students typically would have learned has been disrupted repeatedly over the last two years by the pandemic. Those disruptions make measuring how students are doing academically at this juncture extremely challenging.

But according to a nationally representative survey from the EdWeek Research Center, nearly three-quarters (74%) of teachers—those who have the most real-time data about students’ performance and growth—say they are concerned about whether they’ll be able to help their students achieve grade level competency in math, reading and other core subjects by the end of this school year.

This webinar will outline:

  • What teachers say are the biggest academic, social-emotional, and structural challenges to academic recovery right now
  • What teachers think schools and districts should do to prepare large numbers of students for success in the next grade and beyond

Despite the learning time lost in remote schooling, quarantines, shutdowns, absences, and other pandemic-related interruptions, many teachers believe recovery is possible, although the road may be long. With the right supports and adequate resources, they believe they can get students where they need to be.
