Early projections of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in Delaware used by public officials have not panned out - with cases numbers and hospitalizations lagging behind what models suggested.

Gov. John Carney maintains Delaware’s situation continues to worsen, with infections and hospitalizations trending up.

Education in the First State faced a number of issues before the coronavirus pandemic upended everything.

But those pre-COVID-19 issues have not disappeared.  And work to address some of them is continuing.

One example is Redding Consortium for Educational Equity –which has been developing plans to achieve educational equity for schools in Wilmington and northern New Castle County.

Contributor Larry Nagengast checks in on the group’s progress this week.
