The COVID-19 pandemic has presented heretofore-unseen challenges to students and teachers who have suddenly found themselves the “guinea pigs” in a massive distance learning experiment. With coronavirus infections and deaths climbing in California, a growing number of districts have said they will not be returning to in-person classes in the fall, leaving teachers scrambling to create compelling online learning environments on the fly.
California Teachers Association President E. Toby Boyd joins Capitol Weekly’s Tim Foster and John Howard to give an update on expectations for the upcoming school year and discusses another big CTA priority: passing Prop. 15, the “Split Roll” initiative that would decouple large commercial properties from Prop. 13. All that, plus the fallout from the Janus vs. AFSCME decision, in this episode of the Capitol Weekly Podcast.
