How another recession could test K-12's resilience
from Education Week
If there's one painful experience the nation's schools share from recent history, it's the Great Recession. It's something no educator is keen to relive — but with anxiety rising about an economic downturn in the not-too-distant future, it's possible they won't have a choice. Forecasting such a change for the economy is notoriously difficult, as is projecting how policymakers and schools would respond.
