The Senate Education Recovery Task Force, led by Senate Education Chair M. Teresa Ruiz, held their first meeting this afternoon to begin addressing the challenges facing students, teachers, parents and administrators that have been exposed by COVID-19.
“There is a long road ahead but I am eager to get things started. We have put together a great group and I look forward to collaborating to come up with recommendations for the rest of this school year, the summer and the fall,” said Senator Ruiz (D-Essex). “As the task force continues we will be inviting in experts from various fields to present to the group and offer insight on specific topics. This is no small task but together we can begin to address the challenges currently facing our students and educators and determine proactive measures for the months ahead.”
