How COVID-19 and the 2020 Election Will Shape Education Over the Next Four Years
Nov. 19, 2020

The stakes are high for education in 2020. The 2020 election could bring new faces and new issues to Washington. The COVID-19 pandemic has forever changed the way we look at teaching and learning. With all these changes, where will education fit in, and what major issues will public schools face over the next four years? Join NSBA advocacy experts Deborah Rigsby and Chip Slaven to examine these changes, preview what schools can expect, learn how schools can use COVID-19 relief funds, and consider leadership opportunities for the future of education.
