How Has the Pandemic Affected Education?

On this episode of the QC Podcast, Sammy Ali is joined by Dr. Bobbie Kabuto, department chair of the elementary and early childhood education department at Queens College, to discuss how the pandemic has affected education in the country. After a year of education taking a back seat to safety, students are now facing insurmountable learning challenges. With the lingering effects of the Covid-19 crisis still impacting many communities, the two will discuss the learning barriers exacerbated throughout the last year and the lasting effects it will have, especially in low-income areas.  Photo Credit.
