The Journey: “The Educational Priorities of a New Presidential Administration”


As we approach the Spring 2021 semester at Howard University and welcome the new Presidential administration of Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris, it is vital that explore the connections between education and politics. Right now, we are at a critical crossroads. We are still in the midst of a global pandemic and continuing to work to meet the challenges to provide for our students’ educational needs in a mostly virtual environment. At the same time, the availability of effective COVID-19 vaccines means that the end of the pandemic is in sight, and therefore, we must prepare now for a post-coronavirus educational future.  On today’s episode of “The Journey,” Dr. Wayne Frederick talks to Dr. Dawn Williams, professor and dean of the Howard University School of Education.
