From the Executive Summary: "Americans care deeply about education issues. Their shared experiences during the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic have heightened their sensitivity to the shortcomings of the education system and have fostered a vision for change. The COVID Constituency, comprising a growing movement of parents, teachers, students, education leaders, and organizations, desires systemic changes in education, rather than a reversion back to our pre-pandemic system. As state and district policymakers consider how they want to use their federal dollars for education transformation, it is imperative that they tap into the experiences and priorities of the communities that have the most at stake. An in-depth analysis of national polls since the start of the pandemic reveals the top concerns for education stakeholders: learning loss, low quality curricula, and lack of support for underserved students. Additional concerns in the early childhood and higher education sectors indicate that the COVID Constituency spans the education continuum."
