Efforts to recover from COVID’s lingering toll. New restrictions on teaching about race, gender and sexuality. Gun violence. New efforts to boost reading. Teacher turnover. Intensified focus on student mental health.

Now, as a new school semester launches, we want to know: What’s the biggest education issue facing your school community in 2023?
Our journalists want to start the year from a place of listening, and your voice will help us determine what stories and questions matter most to you. Fill out our brief survey below, or go here.
