The State of American Education

The academic year is in full swing, and while many students have returned to an in-person classroom, the effects of pandemic learning are significant. According to the latest results from the National Assessment of Education Progress, American students experienced some of the largest performance drops in over 30 years. 

What will it take to address the scale of education loss across the country, and what type of investments and interventions are needed to make a difference?

The Hill will gather education leaders at the local, state and federal level, policymakers, teachers, advocates and experts for a 360-degree conversation on how students are faring in 2022 and the state of American education.
