School's Out Report

The Trust for Public Land

The COVID-19 pandemic has put educators and school administrators between a rock and a hard place: bring kids back to the classroom, where experts say that all will be at high risk of virus transmission, or continue with distance learning, which experts agree compromises educational outcomes and accelerates inequality. In this pivotal moment for America’s kids, The Trust for Public Land is part of a growing push to proffer an alternate solution: take learning outside.

I illustrated and animated a video highlighting a statistic from the School's Out ReportThe copy was provided to me: "Analysis of heat maps across 14,000 towns and cities reveals a strong correlation between heat and income. Students in the lowest income bracket are more than twice as likely to attend school in a heat island as those in the highest income bracket."
