Panel discussion with Professor of Black World Studies Randy Quaye, Instructor in Black World Studies Dawn Chisebe, and Associate Professor of English Karen Poremski
It’s been said that COVID-19 is the great equalizer. Yet the pandemic has had a much more devastating impact on some groups, whether distinguished by age, race, gender, occupation, economic status, place of residence, or other factors. The panel will discuss the societal implications of the pandemic and what the pandemic might tell us about general issues of health care.
In this session, Dr. Michele Nobel provides a brief look at other pandemics and whether or not evidence supports school closures, explores how COVID-19 has spotlighted some of the best experiences and the worst inequities of our public schools, and provides a call to action for school reform.
