COVID and the Classroom

By The Heritage Foundation

Public schools across the country are refusing to open their doors amid the COVID-19 pandemic, leaving parents with even fewer options than they had before.  Parents are struggling to navigate the difficult world of remote learning, homeschooling, and “pandemic pods,” all while having to face down teachers unions, public school bureaucrats, revisionist history, and politically motivated teachers pushing their agenda onto America’s children. It doesn’t have to be this way. Parents need more options during this tumultuous time, not fewer. Let’s talk about what we can do to fix this broken system. “COVID and the Classroom” is a new biweekly podcast from The Heritage Foundation hosted by education policy analyst Mary Clare Amselem. Each episode features the most important updates in national education policy and interviews with policy experts, educators, and (most importantly) parents. “COVID and the Classroom” is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, iHeart, or your favorite podcast app. Find more resources at See for privacy and opt-out information.
