Leading with Learning: COVID Series
C!E has always believed that learning, partnership and responsiveness were key characteristics of effective education leaders and systems. We have learned more in the last two years about HOW leaders driven by a sharp stance on systemic inequity learn, partner and respond. COVID has brought even more stark contrast to patterns we see among types of leaders and the core behaviors of other adults in the education systems they serve.
Our initial response to COVID has been to open and facilitate dialogue among people in different seats: families, learners, educators, system leaders, non-profit intermediaries, and policymakers about what is happening and what they are feeling. We have been listening long enough to begin sharing insights. But we also plan to continue to listen and learn over the next several months. We hope to elevate themes from these conversations to inform the regional and national processes of re-envisioning the future of schooling. In this series we ask: which ideas, insights and perspectives should determine the core characteristics of post-COVID equity seeking school systems.
