NJ Spotlight Panel Focuses on Pandemic-Related Back to School Issues

SBN’s latest livestreamed virtual roundtable for NJ Spotlight featured a panel of educators and a student leader discussing how the coronavirus pandemic is complicating back-to-school considerations in New Jersey.

New Jersey is among states that have largely contained the COVID-19 virus outbreak. But as hundreds of public school districts and private education institutions develop their fall instruction and attendance plans, concerns arise about how best to teach students and keep both children and adults safe.

Panelists were:

Fatimah Hayes, High School History Teacher, Pennsauken School District; former President, Pennsauken Education Association
Dr. Arlene Rogo, Vice President, Principal, Neptune Middle School; Coordinator, Monmouth County Elementary/Middle School Administrators Association
Dr. Brian Zychowski, Superintendent of Schools, North Brunswick Township
Sabrina Capoli, Senior, Seneca High School, Tabernacle, Student Representative to NJ State Board of Education

John Mooney, founding editor and education reporter for NJ Spotlight moderated the conversation.
