The pandemic's toll: nearly 500,000 public education jobs disappeared across U.S. in April


In March, there were just over 8 million jobs in K-12 public education. By mid-April, that figure had dropped to just over 7.5 million - a loss of nearly 500,000 jobs.

"More K–12 public education jobs were lost in April than in all of the Great Recession," wrote Elise Gould, who analyzed the data for the Economic Policy Institute, a union-backed progressive think tank. "And that's before any austerity measures from lost state and local revenue have been put in place."
