In this week’s podcast, Carl Cohn speaks with Michael Feuer, dean of the Graduate School of Education and Human Development and professor of education policy at George Washington University. They discuss the upcoming presidential election and what it might mean for education. Feuer weighs in on the changes a new administration might bring.

While schools grapple with the short term challenges of the pandemic, Feuer argues that attention should also be given to long term solutions to the issues in the education system that the pandemic has exposed.

Cohn has fifty years of education service in diverse roles including as a counselor, teacher, district superintendent, State Board of Education member, and executive director of the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence. He brings a deep understanding of the challenges school districts face as they regroup and reopen in the fall. 

This is the twelfth episode in a special series of podcasts hosted by Carl Cohn and sponsored by EdSource and the Ball/Frost Group.
