Faculty members David Knight and Meredith Honig were quoted in an article recently published in The Seattle Times about how schools have responded to Gov. Inslee's school reopening order. While nearly all school districts in Washington state have complied with Gov. Inslee's order to reopen schools, some students are getting much more in-person time than others. Knight, an assistant professor of education finance and policy, commented on the variety in schedules and responses to Inslee's order and highlighted that the imbalance is concerning. Honig, director of the District Leadership Design Lab and professor of education policy, organizations and leadership, emphasized the need for data that includes race and class when studying in-personal learning as well as measures that can speak to the quality of the time spent in the classroom.
