For a long time, teachers and school administrators have had to deal with challenges related to lack of funding and classroom size. But now, debates over virtual vs in-person schooling, school mask mandates, as well as a wave of teacher resignations and retirements is making it an even tougher time to be in the education business…or a parent of school age kids.

April Baer's panel will include:
- Lily Altavena - Educational equity reporter for the Detroit Free Press
