Thank you for joining our 2020 State of Public Education, a Dallas Regional Chamber annual event, featuring Texas Commissioner of Education Mike Morath and other regional education leaders.

Commissioner Morath discussed the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, advances in virtual learning, challenges meeting the technology digital divide, and the importance of assessing student learning loss and moving students forward academically. The conversation was moderated by The Dallas Morning News’ Deputy Publisher Leona Allen Ford.

Dallas ISD Superintendent Dr. Michael Hinojosa, Dallas ISD Board of Trustees President Justin Henry, Plano ISD Superintendent Sara Bonser, and Richardson ISD Superintendent Dr. Jeannie Stone provided updates on the start of school, their commitment to student academic recovery, the November 3 Dallas ISD Bond Election, and the upcoming legislative session.
