Schools, teachers and parents nationwide are now grappling with how best to help students who might have fallen behind after more than a year of interrupted learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In some districts, parents are being asked to consider holding children back a grade.

David Steiner, director of the Johns Hopkins Institute for Education Policy, is available to discuss how schools can help students make up for these missed months of education, and, how retention might not be the best solution.

Steiner, who is also a professor of education and a member of the Maryland State Board of Education, previously served as commissioner of the New York State Education Department.
