Teaching in a Double Pandemic
there are two pandemics teachers must contend with as they try and do their jobs today, says professor of education doris santoro. there’s the covid-19 pandemic, and there’s the pandemic of white supremacy, she explains, both of which “are affecting teachers in significant ways and both of which are interrelated.”
santoro gave a virtual talk (see below) followed by a question-and-answer session on june 25, in an event hosted by the department of alumni relations, discussing teacher burnout and education during a pandemic. she is a philosopher of education who conducts empirical research to study and theorize about the moral and ethical sources of teacher dissatisfaction and resistance.
