September 2022: CSU's Community Learning Center Responds to Covid19
In this episode we meet Amanda Yurick, Associate Professor, Special Education at Cleveland State University. The Covid-19 Pandemic has impacted nearly every facet of our everyday lives. We have seen and felt these effects within our healthcare systems, economy and workforce, transportation sectors, mental health needs and services, and certainly the field of education is implicated as well. How we educate our children and youth saw some dramatic shifts from in-person to remote structures, which left the inequities that have always existed glaringly apparent in the light that Covid shed on our uneven access to resources. At Cleveland State we have help adapt the classroom for local students through our CLC (Community Learning Center).
