OPINION: Direct education grants can give families and children an opportunity to get extra help – The Hechinger Report | Team Cansler

The nation’s families recently received another clear message that our education system does not serve all students. The results of the National Assessment of Educational Progress, known as the “Nation’s Witness,” last month showed the extent of the decline in learning during the pandemic.

It’s about time the students got the help they need. And families have never been hungrier for more options to make it happen.

You are exhausted. The students are frustrated. K-12 educators have one of the highest burnout rates in the US workforce. Despite this, our schools are being asked to take on more. All of this begs the question: should we expect the traditional education system to add additional responsibilities when we already know it hasn’t been able to keep up in recent years?
