32 million US schoolchildren face weeks away from their classes

According to Education Week, some 32 million US schoolchildren in at least 33 states are facing weeks away from their classes following closures to help halt the spread of the pandemic. Authorities warn that the closing of schools poses serious challenges that can disproportionately affect low-income and special needs students. Limited access to the internet is also a challenge for some.
