The coronavirus pandemic has thrown the entire economy into chaos, but no sector hits home quite like education. The Coachella Valley has three unified K12 public school districts, private schools, and higher education institutions including College of the Desert in Palm Desert, Indio, Palm Springs, and Mecca/Thermal, as well as Palm Desert campuses of CSU San Bernardino and UC Riverside. Part 4 of our nine-part series explores the pandemic’s temporary and long-term effects on education as well as how our local institutions are adapting to provide students with the knowledge they need to carry our region into a sustainable future.
