David Knight, assistant professor in Educational Foundations, Leadership and Policy, co-authored an op-ed urging state leaders to ensure that schools have the resources and appropriate policies in place to reopen safely and provide high-quality instruction. For schools to open successfully, argue Dr. Knight and his co-author, state policymakers must remove barriers to evidence-based decision-making at the district and school levels. They recommend that states prioritize adherence to recommended health measures, clarity around allowable and effective use of federal stimulus funds, and open lines of communication with families.
