The COVID-19 outbreak has had a dramatic effect on education. Schools at all levels, across the nation and world, have moved to offering classes online and/or suspended operations. How are students continuing to learn in the current environment with the new stressors it brings? How are teachers and parents handling the move to online classes and learning at home? How are school administrators planning for the future? You can keep up with current news in education with two sources available through the University Libraries.
Chronicle of Higher Education
The Chronicle of Higher Education covers all aspects of higher education, including news, opinion, and job listings. It also offers unique offerings, such as its Advice Finder and Admin 101 series. University readers can create a Chronicle account and choose from a variety of daily and weekly updates that can be delivered to an email inbox.
Education Week provides comprehensive coverage of K-12 education news, analysis, opinion, and jobs. It features numerous videos on educational trends and provides research on state efforts to improve education through its Quality Counts and State Highlights reports. Education Week also offers an excellent map of coronavirus and school closures across the United States.
