The cornonavirus pandemic has changed the way Amercians approach work, interact with family and how students learn. Now there's a plan to have the school year extend throughout the summer. Fordham Conversations host Robin Shannon talking with Nicholas Tampio, a Fordham University Political Science Professor. We discuss the possible plan to extended the school year and why he believes children need to play rather than catch up on school this this summer.
Dr. Nicholas Tampio is a Professor of Political Science at Fordham University who recently wrote an opinion piece for the Washington Post about the importance of play in K12 education as we begin to plan for the summer. Nick returns to join Mike Palmer on this episode to explore the risks of rushing kids back to school when they need time to play outside. We question the benefits of pushing to catch up on standardized tests when many kids need to catch up on their social development by playing with their friends and other peers. We explore the relevance of the construct of “learning loss” as we contemplate the best path forward as we all hope to return to a semblance of normalcy.
