Episode 74- Is COVID Widening The Education Gap? How To Stay Ahead In College Admissions.

Perhaps this is a trick question, but I dare say the question is NOT, “Is COVID widening the education gap,” but rather how much will this pandemic exacerbate the already stark inequities in our national K-12 system?

High School seniors wrestle with what to do and how to explain what their own education has looked like over the last 6 months. Sophomores and juniors question what will matter most in two or three years?

I’ve been asked over and over again, “What should my kid be doing now? What if s/he doesn’t have access to teachers, sports, activities, or financial resources to get ready for college?”

Today I will answer these questions. Whoa — things are changing by the day and it is hard to keep up for me, so I can’t imagine what it’s like for you — to be a parent, a spouse, a teacher, and also your teen’s college counselor.

Breathe. Let me take some things off your plate today.

You will leave with: 4 Realities, 4 Questions To Ask, and My top 4 To Dos NOW to stay ahead!
