    04.11.2021 | In Focus on NY1 | Randi Levine joined In Focus to talk about her organization has come up with a comprehensive COVID education recovery plan for the current mayor and his successor to adopt that includes hiring a core of professionals to bolster the areas of academics, social, emotional and engagement and outreach; creating an expanded summer program to help students who need additional help; specialized support for different populations of students including special education and English language learners; and significant mental health assistance. 

    Levine also talks about how during the pandemic there has been a startling decline in the number of referrals to the city’s early intervention program which provides evaluations and services for zero to three-year-olds with developmental delays and disabilities, and that 3-K and Pre-K will never be for all until the mayor steps up and also ensures that there is a preschool special education class for every child who needs one. Watch video
