Gov. Ralph Northam on what has been lost in education during pandemic

February 4, 2021 | 7:31 PM GMT
Gov. Ralph Northam said the disruption of education has had an outsized impact on school-age children in the U.S. “Our children definitely learn better when they’re in a classroom. The social interaction is important. We have seen higher rates of depression which is so unfortunate.[…] One thing I think is very important that we will be announcing tomorrow is that we want to extend our classroom to this summer to allow our children to catchup so everyone will be ready in the fall. We are working with our teachers, school boards, superintendents, it has to be a top priority for all of us to get our children back into the classroom”
