The data tracking learning loss among the nation’s schoolchildren confirms that things are bad and getting worse. The data also tells another story — one with serious implications for the hoped for learning recovery initiatives that will guide the next chapter in the pandemic saga. That story invites a comparison between what we know about the K-3 cohorts from Fall 2019 with what the data predict for those same grades for Fall 2021.

Drawing on guidance from educators – teachers, school-leaders, superintendents – and parents, this webinar from the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading launches a series of conversations with some of the leading experts and entrepreneurs associated with promising interventions for successful teaching and learning. Among other things, they will share their views on the challenges and opportunities facing teachers, school leaders, school districts and, importantly, parents.
