Watch Bridge’s Lunch Break about how COVID impacts Michigan K-12 students

Feburary lunch break

Bridge Michigan’s monthly Lunch Break series continued Wednesday with a discussion about how the pandemic and COVID-related policies have affected K-12 students in Michigan.

If you missed Wednesday’s chat, you can watch it on demand below. 

Bridge reporters Ron French and Isabel Lohman were joined by Katharine Strunk, professor of education policy at Michigan State University’s College of Education; Tanya Pitkin, director of the Michigan Parent Teacher Association (PTA) Board of Directors; and Jeremy Singer, doctoral candidate in educational leadership and policy studies at Wayne State University and research assistant for the Detroit Education Research Partnership.

Bridge’s Lunch Break monthly series focuses on timely topics facing our state. Previous discussions have included examinations of Michigan’s new redistricting maps, Michigan’s eldercare crisis, COVID mandates and K-12 education, youth mental health in Michigan, and the impact of climate change in Michigan.
