Like no education reform effort has been able to do, the COVID-19 crisis has created an unprecedented level of public will for change. The tension between the elements of “doing school” and on meeting the individual learning and growth needs of every student is real.
Too often, organizations large and small are prone to jump to “solutions” without clearly understanding and defining the problem they face. This is an all-too-common issue in education as well! Like the first session in this series, this one will be made up of education stakeholders from across the state and will use an empathy informed process to refine and clearly define the problem(s) we wish to solve. The panel will then model how divergent thinking and brainstorming can identify potential breakthrough solutions.
Hosted by Ben Owens and Dominque Stone in collaboration with EdNC.
