The New Reality Roundup | Week 88

It is week 88 of our new reality and while nearly two weeks have passed since the election results in Virginia, New Jersey and elsewhere across the nation, the debate about what it means for education continues without much sign of slowing down. 50CAN President Derrell Bradford shared his reading of the post-election tea leaves in an op-ed for the New York Daily News.

Last time in the New Reality Roundup, we looked at declining enrollment in New York City’s public schools and examined rising rates of school violence.

Today, we take stock of the implications this month’s elections will have on the next year, and the immense opportunity for education advocates, and look at the disruption being spurred by severe school staff shortages happening in multiple states.
