Cecily Myart-Cruz on Education After COVID-19

Cecily Myart-Cruz is the President of United Teachers Los Angeles (and the first woman of color to hold the position) and as both a teacher and a parent, she understands the frustrations of at-home learning and the pressing desire to get kids back into schools. But she says there’s much to be considered first -- like how often students should take standardized tests in the coming year, for example. Los Angeles has become one of the models that districts across the country are looking to as they lay plans to return to the classroom, and Cecily discusses how she’s working with challenges presented specifically to Black and Brown students as schools reopen.
