Virtual Event: “How COVID Changed Education”

During the COVID-19 pandemic, schools worldwide closed and an estimated 168 million students have been out of school for over a year, entering into a mass online learning experiment.

In the United States, in-person learning will largely be restored this fall, but questions remain about how to keep K-12 schools safe and about the lingering effects of more than a year of remote education.

On Aug. 5, 2021, top Johns Hopkins University experts discussed critical information for educators, parents, and policymakers during the virtual event “HOW COVID CHANGED EDUCATION: What we need to know now and in coming years.”

Addressed topics included:

  • What’s the plan for K-12 schools if the Delta variant remains dominant?
  • Will the impacts of the COVID pandemic impede student success for years to come—and if so, what are the warning signs?
  • What is the best way to get those students who fell behind back on track?


  • Annette Anderson, deputy director of Johns Hopkins Center for Safe and Healthy Schools
  • Robert Balfanz, director of the Johns Hopkins Everyone Graduates Center
  • David Steiner, executive director of the Johns Hopkins Institute for Education Policy
