It’s a new academic year like no other on the K-12 and higher education beats. A pair of veteran education journalists share tips and insights for what’s ahead this fall and beyond. Bianca Vasquez Toness, a reporter on The Boston Globe’s educational equity team, shares ideas for focusing on teacher workloads, remote learning curriculum, and what schools are doing to reach their most vulnerable students. Lindsay Ellis, a senior reporter with The Chronicle of Higher Education, discusses her top stories for the new academic year, including how students might be held accountable if they break pandemic-era health and safety rules, and demands by campus communities to address longstanding inequities and racial injustice in the wake of the killing of George Floyd in police custody.
