Education Today 2021


Education Today 2021

It’s that time of year again: back to school time. And this year, kids actually get to start the year in classrooms! But due to COVID-19 lingering around like an unwanted guest, the state of California is requiring students to mask up while indoors on campus. For this year’s Education Today issue, New Times Assistant Editor Peter Johnson writes about how local school districts are dealing with parents who want more freedom for their kids, while Sun Staff Writer Malea Martin talks about the state’s new preschool requirements and what it means for early education in public schools.
