2020 has been a year like no other. The pandemic not only altered life as we know it, it also exposed the deep fault lines in our nation’s schools. The nation has also embarked on one of the largest movements in its history, as Black Lives Matter protests surged across the country over the brutal killing of George Floyd in May.

Educators see the need to equalize and improve the educational experience for Black students, but they might not have the tools or the support they need to address curriculum, practices, and policies that have long denied Black students the same opportunities to thrive as their white peers.

View Closing COVID-19 Equity Gaps in Schools, the eighth installment of the Education Week special report How We Go Back to School, online now
The grim facts of how coronavirus affected the spring are well known by now: Schools and districts scrambled to train teachers in virtual learning and to provide educational materials, including computers and Internet access, to their students. Yet children and youth who already faced educational challenges in normal times possibly lost months of educational progress.

The 2020-21 school year doesn’t have to be a retread of the previous months, especially for the most vulnerable students. Education Week talked to dozens of educators and parents and combed through documents on how to infuse equity into learning plans to find a better way.
