Marshall Plan II: Heal the Damage, But Build for the Future by Robert E. Slavin

Marshall Plan II: Heal the Damage, But Build for the Future
Robert E. Slavin
At the end of World War II, Western Europe was devastated. Factories, housing, transportation, everything was destroyed. Millions were homeless, millions were refugees. The U.S. led an international effort to help countries rebuild. The U.S. Marshall Plan (1947-1951) was a massive gift to restart Western Europe and economies and societies.           
 
There was so much that obviously had to be done in the short term. Yet the leaders of the shattered countries were not just thinking short term. Each of them used a significant portion of the Marshall Plan funding to establish national health systems. One irony never mentioned in the debate about trying European-style universal health care in the U.S. is that U.S. funds were used to create these very plans.
 
Today we face the COVID-19 crisis. Schools have closed, and are unlikely to re-open until September, at best...According to evidence, experience, and common sense, large scale, small group tutoring programs, and other proven methods, should enable struggling students to make substantial gains, erasing deficits from the COVID-19 closures.
