For our first interactive virtual event, we invited reporters and editors across Word In Black to discuss how Coronavirus has affected and continues to change the landscape of education. The panelists discussed how the pandemic has affected and changed education and how parents, teachers, administrators and students are adapting and where do they go in the new school year.

The event was held Tuesday, September 14, 2021.
