School Funding in the Wake of COVID-19

Balancing widespread health, academic and political challenges in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, districts and schools will also face the prospect of reduced budgets as they attempt to resume instruction this fall.

Renowned economist and education researcher Eric Hanushek (Stanford University) joins CPRE Executive Director Jonathan Supovitz (University of Pennsylvania) to discuss the potential economic and workforce impacts of the pandemic, and how a prolonged downturn might affect students.

Hanushek also offers some research-backed recommendations for states, districts and school leaders hoping to rebound from one of the greatest educational challenges in living memory.
