Commentary: How the Education in Emergencies Field Can Help the United States Respond to COVID-19

Authors Rebecca Winthrop and Helen Shwe Hadani provide this commentary on how COVID-19 has made the United States a site of education in emergencies. This is apparent in the language of “build back better,” as much as it is in the cognitive, social, and emotional lags students may experience due to less interaction with other children and teachers. The availability of technology and the pivot to online learning modalities has saved the US students from a total backslide—an outcome that is not the case for many students worldwide.
