K-12 schools’ potential new normal could also exacerbate existing inequalities between rich and poor school districts, said Julian Vasquez Heilig, the dean of the University of Kentucky’s College of Education, as “recent school finance research has established that rich and poor districts already have hundreds millions of dollars in inequity in terms of funding from all sources.” “The availability of resources in rich and poor districts directly impacts the ability of the district to offer smaller class sizes in socially distanced classrooms, flexibility of facilities for alternative modes of instruction, availability of technology for distance learning and alternative modes of instruction, availability of PPE for students, staff and faculty and most other circumstance related to COVID-19 responses,” Vasquez Heilig told MarketWatch.
