The new school year has started and students, parents, teachers, school staff and administrators across the country are dealing with the uncertainty of education during a global health pandemic. On this month's Future City, we discuss how COVID-19 is shaping education, how schools in Baltimore and around the country are rolling out virtual instruction and how digital and racial inequities are exacerbating educational inequity.
