It's time to declare an education emergency

Children arrive for classes at Forest View Elementary where social distancing is enforced.

We are facing an undeclared education emergency.

When we closed schools six months ago, Minnesota already suffered one of the largest racially and economically unjust learning gaps in the country. With schools closed, those gaps got bigger - much bigger. If all we do is reopen with schools operating as they were six months ago - whether in-person or online - we will have allowed a bad situation to get substantially worse and crippled the futures of our most vulnerable students.

This is an emergency.
